Board offers update on thread trail

Monday, December 17, 2012 — The village of Misenheimer met Monday, discussing updates to many projects occurring within the area.

The Carolina Thread Trail Corridor design project is completed, meaning they’ve settled on a route and alternates. The council has spoken with some of the owners of the properties that the corridor will run through, asking that they be allowed to utilize their land for the trail.

Mayor J. Michael Riemann is working on crafting a non-binding letter of intent for residents along the corridor trail.

The next step in the whole project is to acquire a grant proposal for funding the placement of these easements.

“We’ve received positive feedback from residents along the preferred trail. They are very supportive for the most part,” Village Administrator Pam Humphrey said.

Next year the council should be able to continue with formerly acquiring those easements.

Board of Adjustments and Planning Board member Donnie Day resigned his position Monday night. Day served as the vice chairman on both of these boards.

Day cited personal scheduling issues as the primary reason for his resignation.

Judy Hammill will take Day’s seat on the boards, serving throughout the end of his term to June 30, 2014.

When the Board of Adjustments and Planning boards meet in January, they will discuss appointing someone to fill the vice chair position.

“We’re fortunate to be able to tap some more members of the community to work with us,” said Humphrey.

The village council gave approval for the mayor to continue discussion with other parties in the county about providing sewer services to Misenheimer.

Riemann has spoken with the county to see what the possibility was of adding in a sewer system.

“What can you do, what are our needs and what are the next steps for the analysis?” are some of the questions that need to be addressed before the issue can move further, he said.

December saw the completion of the beginning stages of restoration work at the Gladstone House.

Known as Phase 1B, the house’s foundation and interior floor have recently been finished. The differences the restoration has made are visible on the facade of the house.

With Phase 1B complete, this marks the end of budgeted restoration for the Gladstone House for this fiscal year.

The Planning Board will meet with the NC Department of Commerce- Division of Community Planning in the Community Building at 7 p.m. Jan. 10.

Misenheimer’s next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 6 p.m. Jan.14.
