CuRvE gets ARC grantWritten by Admin
The nonprofit community group known as the Cullowhee Revitalization Endeavor (CuRvE) has been awarded an Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) grant from the Southwest Commission to fund ongoing efforts for improved recreational amenities along the Tuckaseegee River where it passes through the Cullowhee community.
CuRvE’s projects focus on a 3.5-mile portion of the river from the Lena Davis Landing upstream to the newly constructed Locust Creek River Access Area close to N.C. 107.
The grant will provide funds for CuRvE to hire a river consultant to create a plan for in-stream water activities and a landscape architect to create a series of drawings to help visualize the possibilities for a riverpark and completed greenway. The organization has also been working closely with N.C. DOT on an improved design for the new bridge that will constructed over the Tuckaseegee River this fall.
CuRvE is currently finishing up work on a previous grant from the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area.
