The OWASA Board will hold a meeting Thursday to discuss previous comments and new conditions about the potential Mountains to Sea Trail utilizing OWASA property.

At the previous meeting in July, residents were concerned with the preservation of the Cane Creek water reservoir, fire safety on the trail and proximity to the neighboring houses.

As planned at the last meeting, board members have further discussed conditions of the trail for Orange County but welcome public comment to the new conditions presented.

In a release about the meeting, OWASA says they plan to discuss their plan to protect the Cane Creek Reservoir.

Although this process may take years to finish, the partnership of the Mountains to Sea Trail staff and Orange County Department of Agriculture plan to continue to engage with the community and work with land owners to make the trail the best fit for the area.
