CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The City of Shelby is providing its residents and the public with an informal opportunity to learn about and provide input on how it can best implement the Carolina Thread Trail (The Thread) along the First Broad River.
A community open house will be held on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012, from 4:30-7 p.m. in the Aquatics Conference Room at Shelby City Park. The park is located at 850 West Sumter St. in Shelby.
With funding from the Carolina Thread Trail, the city is contracting with LandDesign, Inc. to conduct a trail corridor study. The study will help determine the best trail alignment along the First Broad River corridor from the historic railroad trestle off of West Grover St.
