Roads Update

Here’s a quick update on various road projects in Montreat:

  • Texas Road: As mentioned earlier, Texas Road between the Bill Wilde Rec. Center and the junction with Texas Road Spur is closed for installation of a water line. It’s expected that Texas Road will reopen by March 8.
  • Greybeard Trail: A Request for Qualifications for engineering/construction has been recently re-released to repair the damage from Tropical Storm Alberto. Given the complexity of the project, it is not expected to be completed before summer.
  • Assembly Drive: Notice the large cubes of concrete and piles of gravel down by the gate? It will be used to repair the culvert at the junction of Assembly/Kanawha/Virginia Roads. Repairs will begin on March 11, and traffic will be detoured. We’ll remind you again next week.
  • Repaving: Repaving of Calvin Trail, Frist Road and Texas Road will occur as soon as the asphalt plants open for the season. We expect that in late March or April.

Even More Volunteer Opportunities

Last week we shared about volunteer opportunities for the Board of Adjustment. This week, we share about opportunities on the Open Space Conservation Committee. To learn more about the Committee and it’s important work, CLICK HERE.

Montreat Town government depends on the generous volunteerism of its citizens. Please consider submitting an application (CLICK HERE for application) to serve on Open Space Conservation Committee.

Help “Montreatize” the New Town Hall

Donations are still being accepted for the new Town Hall to “Montreatize” it—adding stone floors in the entrance corridors and lobby (like in Gaither), stone on the porch floors and an accent wall of stone on one of the lobby walls (like in Assembly Inn and Gaither).

By making a tax-deductible gift, you will ensure the Town Hall will capture the spirit of Montreat. CLICK HERE for a brochure about the project. Contact Bill Scheu at 828.669.2891 for further information or to make your gift.
