After several speeches, about 60 people in attendance ventured down a path to Slocum Creek to an overlook where the property for the recreation area is located.

Scott Chase, a former Havelock planning director who is credited for building the coalition of parties and facilitating the project’s beginning, came from Raleigh to be a part of the event.

“It’s exciting,” Chase said.  “It will be interesting to see it come together over the next few years.”

City manager Jim Freeman said that clearing and other site preparation could be underway within the next 12 months, followed by other features as grant monies are received.
