Vote YES for kids.
Gregory Lane is a critical community corridor, providing passage for our students to school as well as numerous businesses and families. Ensuring a street with complete sidewalks, adequate room for traffic and reliable water, sewer and stormwater is essential for the safety of students Kindergarten through High School and for maintaining a livable, walkable community.
Gregory Lane will also serve to protect Flat Creek, an important water system in our community. Flat Creek is currently labeled as an “impaired” waterway; however, a new water filtration system under Gregory Lane will serve to filter sediment from water runoff before it reaches Flat Creek.
