On Monday, crews will resume the special spring trash/yard waste pickup. Crews still need to complete yard waste collection in areas south of Poole Drive but north of Timber (portions of gold and green routes). Crews also need to pick up mattresses, electronics, TVs and tires in various parts of town. For more information about any waste collection matters, please contact Public Works at (919) 772-7600 Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

The proposed South Garner Greenway extension has two main goals: 1) to give residents better bicycle and pedestrian options to get to White Deer and Lake Benson Parks, and 2) to prepare Garner to connect to a future regional greenway linking Lake Benson and Lake Wheeler.

This proposed project includes a multi-use path shown in yellow/orange going from the Vandora Springs roundabout south to the Lakemoor area. This element of the project is the same on all the route options.

From the Lakemoor area there are three route options under consideration: Option A, Option B, and Option C. Although Town staff and the consultant (McAdams) have put considerable effort into these options, they are still in draft stage and may change as the design work progresses. The proposed routes are contingent on the Town being able to acquire easement agreements where property access is needed.

The map below offers an overview of the proposed project with the three options depicted. You can click on the map to get a downloadable pdf. Below that map are links to individual maps for each of the three options as well as a chart indicating the costs of the three options. In addition, we have a one-page fact sheet on greenways in general.

If you have questions or concerns about this proposed project, please contact Assistant Town Manager-Operations Matt Roylance at
