ESMMYC Letter to Editor: Tega Cay Bike, Pedestrian & Trail Master Plan

York County, SC (Dec. 23, 2018) ESMMYC’s letter to the editor of the Rock Hill Herald – We support the City of Tega Cay’s efforts to create a Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trail Master Plan as an addendum to the city’s comprehensive plan. Documenting and implementing this plan will enhance Tega Cay’s long-term attractiveness, economic success, and community members’ safety and health. The global trend is towards more biking and pedestrian activity, and we have the same demand here in York County. In our efforts to make the healthy choice the easy choice in York County, we know the importance of making biking and walking more accessible and safer in our community.
