The town of Weldon will hold a listening session Thursday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. to gain feedback on its riverfront enhancement project.
The session will be held at town hall which is located at 109 Washington Avenue.
Plans for the project will be available for public inspection and those attending will have the opportunity to speak to town commissioners about the project as well.
The Weldon Riverfront Enhancement Project would consist of boardwalks both upriver and downriver from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission Boat Landing in the center of River Falls Park.
It would also include pavilions at each end of the project for viewing the river, community programming, concerts, and special events.
These pavilions would consist of picnic facilities and trash receptacles. “We feel these enhancements would allow handicap accessible access to the Roanoke River vistas and encourage events and visitation to Weldon's riverfront. This enhancement would improve the health and well-being of our citizens and increase commerce in the town of Weldon,” the town said.
The town is seeking a North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund grant for the riverfront project.
A PARTF grant initially funded River Falls Park.
