RDU Airport Land Use Planning
The RDU Airport has begun an 18-month land use planning study. Information: http://www.rdu.com/
The process will include the detailing of current inventory, aviation forecasts, future facility needs, alternative developments and their evaluation, and implementation plan.
The Umstead Coalition is a member of the appointed Policy Advisory Committee for this process.
The Umstead Coalition current position: We support the maintenance and enhancement of a substantial trail system along the Old Reedy Creek Road and greenway corridor connecting the Black Creek Greenway trail to William B. Umstead State Park's Reedy Creek Trail. The Umstead Coalition supports enhancing the economic vitality that this recreation and forested corridor brings to the community.
Please let us know your suggestions as we participate in the RDU Airport Authority Master Planning process, learn more and can offer informed recommendations.
Thanks to all who made our May 30 Celebration event a success. We're very proud of the work our volunteers have accomplished in coordination with our amazing Umstead State Park staff!
We will continue to have Service Work Days. Check our Event Calendar on the upper right - it's routinely updated with new events.
