Letter: Lexington needs greenway like Salisbury’s
Lexington is the only city in the Piedmont that does not have a greenway/bicycle path. I would suggest the city pave a path next to the sewer system, just like Salisbury has done. This path could follow National Boulevard to Sink Inn Road and would be visible from Business 85.
It would be an opportunity for citizens to eat the Lexington barbecue and then ride their bicycles or walk to the Lexington Hospital.
I would like to see a greenway/bike path be in existence from the Lexington Country Club to the current Belk department store. This path would start at Finch Park and end at the new Chick-fil-A in front of Interstate 85.
Salisbury is an example for Mayor Clark to follow and close enough for the mayor to walk or ride his bike on the Salisbury Greenway.
Salisbury also has a path to follow on Fulton Street.
