School Projects

Accomplishments to date:


Hardin Park

All right of way to finish sidewalks and a *safe* crosswalk to the main entrance of Hardin Park school has been donated and construction will start in July 2021!  Here’s what our advocacy accomplished: by organizing parents and friends of Hardin of Park School we helped push town council, the DOT, and landholders on the NC 194 corridor to arrive at a solution to make this a safe place for children to walk beside and cross the road.  This situation was a tragedy waiting to happen. 

We want to give our deep thanks to those who donated easements to the town to make this happen, they are all listed in the linked article.  Also deep thanks for everyone who helped us push to a solution, here are a few; Mike Odom, Dabney Smith, Ginger Powell, Jason Mawhinney, Jennifer Schroeder Tyson, Matt Tyson, Jon Wells, Stephanie West, Lynne Mason, Principal Phil Norman, and the 500 people who signed our petition

Biggest thanks of all to John Ward, our town manager – your diplomacy, tenacity, and skill brought this together.  You are an asset to Boone and we appreciate you, sir!
