Burke County is planning the new and expanded Jonas Ridge Convenience Site. In partnership with the Foothills Conservancy, the County has acquired land that will be used for the convenience site as well as a community center and nature park.
The three-acre parcel owned by the County will house the new convenience site and convert the existing building into a community center with public restrooms. The Convenience site will have more room, additional drop off bins, and new compactors that make it easier to drop off trash.
The nature park will be on land purchased by Foothills Conservancy with a North Carolina Clean Water Management Trust Fund grant. This land will be under a conservation easement to protect the rare Southern Appalachian bog habitat on the property. While the easement prohibits development, walking trails, boardwalks, and observation platforms are permitted.
The County would like your input on the project. Please take a moment to review each concept, answer the questions below, and submit the form into the box. Thank you for your time!
