Bolin Creek is at the center of a long-running controversy. The creek runs through Carrboro and Carolina North Forest, one of the last untouched habitats in the area. Since 2009, some Carrboro leaders have wanted to build a greenway along the creek. Opponents say that would destroy the pristine environment. Gregory Hall has more.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the Carrboro Greenways Commission supports the paving plan. In fact, neither the commission nor the Carrboro Board of Aldermen has voted on the issue. Commission chair Charlie Hileman is expressing his own opinion in this story, not the views of commission members.
