Today, the City of Kinston presented its final plan for the Martin Luther King corridor to the Golden Leaf Foundation for funding approval.  The requested $422,000 would help pay for sidewalks, decorative fencing, wayfinding signs, crosswalks, street trees, lighting, and a roundabout at King and MLK.  Before and after images of the Boys and Girls Club and King/MLK intersection are shown below, depicting some of the proposed changes.

    Am interested in learning more….have just started a group to grow green infrastructure in Kinston, and are interested in a community garden in this corridor as our first project.
    would love to hear from you,
