Laurens Joins Clinton Supporting Laurens County Trails

Laurens City Council this week joined with Clinton City Council earlier in the month in approving a Resolution of Support for the Laurens county Trails Association. As in the Clinton action, the vote does not provide funding for trail development, but helps the group seek grants. Trail Association Managing Director Don Walker told council that this recently formed non-profit organization is dedicated to promoting healthier lifestyles by the creation of walking, running and cycling trails. Walker presented council with “His dream,” of connecting with the Swamp Rabbit Trail at Fountain Inn and extending it through Laurens County to connect with the Palmetto Trail, leading on to the Midlands and beyond. Mayor Sharon Brownlee said “I believe in this, I think it will be a big addition to the community.”
