During their meeting Monday, Holly Springs City Council members approved seeking a Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Program Grant to pay for trail and sidewalk extensions on the city’s south side.
Community Development Director Nancy Moon said the proposed trail and sidewalk extensions would connect trails along Holly Springs Parkway. Moon said these trails include Matthews Crossing to Stony Creek, which is 330 feet, Stony Creek Shopping Center to Fox Creek, which is 630 feet, and Toonigh to Sixes Road, which is 1,580 feet.
City officials said that, when the project is completed, the city’s trail system will provide trails for pedestrian use, bicycle use and be accessible to people with disabilities.
On an unrelated matter, council members discussed an amendment to the Municipal Services Master Fee Schedule agreement. City Manager Rob Logan said the resolution is to add a fine of $70 for drivers exceeding the speed limit by 5-10 mph.
Another amendment was proposed to fine drivers who drive without having their driver license with them $10. Logan said the Official Code of Georgia asks for this provision in the fee schedule.
The council then discussed a Fire and Emergency Services Agreement draft between the county and Holly Springs. Logan said that the draft proposes changing the length of the term agreement to 10 years, as well as other minor provisions.
