Camden County Receives Grant for Coastal Georgia Greenway

The Camden County Board of Commissioners recently received a $18,600 grant for Phase I of the Gum Branch Preserve Trail through the Coastal Georgia Greenway funding from the Coastal Regional Commission and the GA Department of Community Affairs (DCA).

“We are quite pleased to receive these funds,” said Camden County Grants Manager Julie Haigler. “This is a great opportunity for us to work with our partners and expand the trail program.”

The grant, combined with SPLOST, in-kind, and Camden County Public Service Authority (PSA) resources will construct an eight foot wide trail that is 2,000 linear feet in length.  Construction of this phase of the project should be complete by July 2018 and will connect users to Howard Peeples Park and City of Kingsland sidewalks.

This project is part of the Coastal Georgia Greenway, a 155-mile trail system that connects South Carolina to Florida through Georgia’s six coastal counties.
