“Imagine walking out your front door, getting on a bicycle…
or simply donning your backpack, and, within minutes of your
home, setting off along a continuous network of recreation
corridors…” –President’s Commission on Americans Outdoors

“We need to make sure that our sidewalk systems throughout
the community have connectability. Anything we can do to
improve walkability, we’re going to be better off long term in
the city.”i –Mayor Doug Echols

“Good urban planning that has people walking and bicycling
and keeping cars off the road would be the best solution to
some of the problems we have.”ii –Joe Zdenek, Chairman of
Henry’s Knob group of the Sierra Club

According to a 2002 survey of the citizens of Rock Hill, 58
percent of respondents rated the ease of walking in Rock Hill
as fair or poor.iii

I.     Overview
In June 2003, the City of Rock Hill adopted its first Trails and Greenways Master Plan - the
product of a two and one-half year effort led by the Rock Hill Trails and Greenways Task Force.
The main focus of the 2003 Plan was to connect major destinations, primarily by sidewalk. At
that time only 11.16 miles of trails had been constructed, mostly within existing parks. Since
then, the City’s existing trail network has grown to nearly 46.5 miles!

The primary intent of the Trails and Greenways Master Plan Update is to build on the existing
trail system by creating a more comprehensive network and extending the network to the Urban
Services Area (USA). The update incorporates Rock Hill’s Open Space Plan, adopted in 2006,
and county and regional initiatives to promote connectivity. Additionally, the update establishes
an implementation plan to encourage timely construction of trail facilities. Building upon
existing planning efforts and facilities, the Master Plan Update contains detailed trail corridor
recommendations and guidelines, which together form a comprehensive network.


A.     Why Develop a Trail and Greenway System?
Imagine miles and miles of green. Trees, wildflowers, sparkling streams and rivers, animals and
birds, sights and sounds, peace and quiet, fresh air and sunshine. Walk, jog, or bike to hiking
trails and walking paths, past protected natural areas, historic landmarks, learning centers and
shopping centers, all sorts of recreational amenities, shaded sidewalks and rest areas. Picture
Rock Hill residents of all ages and abilities, staying fit, enjoying the outdoors, walking, biking,
and jogging their way to work or school, learning about the natural environment and their place
in it and all of these activities taking place close to home, right here in Rock Hill.

The South Carolina State Trails Program defines community trails and greenways as networks of
green spaces or trail “systems.” More importantly, a community trail and greenway system can
be used as a tool for a new way of looking at the overall quality of life and interconnectedness of
our city. A trails and greenway system will protect the natural resources that make our
community unique as it integrates these assets into the landscapes and lives of its citizens. Even
with certain overarching guidelines for structure and safety, each segment of a trail and
greenway system can be enhanced and flavored by the area it comes in contact with. No facet of
city planning or design is isolated from the others. In order to effect a successful implementation
of these ideas, it’s necessary to connect the dots, so to speak. A trail and greenway system does
just that, both literally and figuratively. We don’t protect or care about what we don’t know. To
change that, the logical next step is to provide a physical means. In this case, it is a trail and
greenway system that provides that connection within the community, bringing the people to,
around, and through the city.

Trail and greenway systems are limited only by our imagination, following man-made as well as
natural features of the land and water they cross. These “ribbons of green space” will not only
enhance recreational and fitness opportunities but also serve as tools that help Rock Hill integrate
and manage decisions about land management, its use and conservation, as well as economic
initiatives. Connectivity will build community. Improved health enhances recreation options
throughout the city. Economics and transportation affect each other every day. The
environment, good or bad, has some kind of an effect on everything. In a sense, a trail and

5/15/2008                                                                              Page 1 of 47
greenway system is what we as community citizens make it: taking our health, recreation,
transportation, economic, and environmental needs and integrating them into our natural
resources right here at home, right here in Rock Hill.


B.     Definitions
The following is a list of commonly used terms found throughout this document.

Trail, Multi-Purpose: An access way, whether paved or unpaved, that is intended to serve
multiple modes of travel including walking, jogging, bicycling, or other forms of non-motorized
transport. Multi-purpose trails tend to connect significant destinations.

Bikeway: A designated bike lane or on-street bike route reserved for bicycle-only usage.

Greenway: A greenway is a corridor of open space that follows a natural feature such as a
woodland, river, stream or floodplain or manmade, such as abandoned railroad beds and utility
corridors. These linear greenbelts link various types of development by such facilities as
environmentally sensitive bicycle paths, footpaths, and bridle paths. Greenways are usually kept
in their natural state except for the pathway and areas immediately adjacent to the pathway.

Sidewalk: A paved pedestrian walkway along the side of a street.

Surface, Pervious/Permeable: Material that allows fluid to pass or diffuse through. Pervious
surfaces consist of materials that permit water to permeate into the ground by virtue of their
porous nature or by large spaces in the material.

Surface, Impervious: Material that fluid cannot pass or diffuse through. Impervious surfaces
consist of a hard surface that prevents or retards the entry of water into the soil or causes water to
run off the surface in greater quantities than the flow present under natural conditions.

Community Greenway: Community greenways and trails are networks of green space or trail
“systems.”

Bollard: A wooden, concrete, or metal pole that serves as a barrier to unauthorized vehicular
access to a trail. Bollards are typically arranged in a row across the trail at access points.


C.     Benefits of a Trail and Greenway System
The benefits of a trail and greenway system can be grouped into five categories: health,
recreation, transportation, economic, and environmental. These benefits are interrelated to a
great extent. For example, a person who walks to work on a greenway may be primarily using it
as a transportation facility. In addition to the obvious transportation benefits, this person also
realizes health, environmental, and most likely recreation benefits as well. The following
sections summarize the benefits provided by an extensive trail and greenway system.




5/15/2008                                                                                Page 2 of 47
Health

Health benefits are generally taken most seriously. Recent studies support that overall, South
Carolinians are not an active people. As a state, we are still well below the national average for
the number of people who are physically active. A 1999 study by The Prevention Research
Center at the University of South Carolina School of Public Health found that the lack of
physical activity causes nearly 2,000 deaths annually and costs the state $157 million or more
annually in hospital charges.iv Much has been written about exercise as an effective tool for
reducing the incidence of heart disease and diabetes. And who doesn’t know about how a
sedentary lifestyle relates to obesity. Recent studies by the Center for Disease Control support
that the most effective activity programs are those that are modest in intensity and therefore
sustainable, individualized, and incorporated into a person’s daily life. Of all the outdoor
activities enjoyed by South Carolinians, the most popular is walking, being both sustainable and
time-efficient. Research has also shown that, if more walking trails are built in an area, the
number of users increases and so does their time on the trails. Enticing people out on to the trails
or onto a greenway that connects different areas of the city makes for a community wellness
project in the most literal sense. Trails and greenways can have extraordinary health benefits
while they offer new strategies for promoting health and wellness to our community.

Recreation

Recreation is often aligned with all the health benefits it affords. The addition of a community
trail and greenway system provides safe routes for recreational activities like walking and
bicycling, which leads to better health. But as all recreation enthusiasts can tell you, recreation
can be an end in and of itself. Few things here in Rock Hill would enhance opportunities for the
optimal use of our free time as much as a trail and greenway system. Well-designed greenways
and trails connect both natural and cultural features in a community, as well as neighborhoods to
parks and schools. This would open up all sorts of opportunities. Aside from the physical
exercise, which would probably be its most obvious use, the trail and greenway system could
connect shopping centers with soccer fields, learning centers with outdoor laboratories, gardens
with playgrounds, downtown and university areas with restaurants and theaters. Endless
possibilities will open up, all of them dependent on the human energy needed to get the
participants to where they would want to be.

Transportation

Transportation problems are a common headache to city planners. The biggest deterrent to
increased non-motorized transportation is lack of facilities, not distance. Studies show that one-
quarter of trips are one mile or less, half are three miles or less, and two-thirds are less than five
miles. Visitors from other urban areas and foreign countries often remark that they miss not
being able to bike or safely walk to work. Their pocket books suffer along with their health.
While bike paths and walking trails are not a sure-fire solution to every urban problem, they do
mean fewer trips by motor vehicles and less air pollution, fewer parking spaces needed, and less
dependency on foreign oil. The trail and greenway system has the potential to reduce the
number of trips taken by car and therefore reduce the maintenance required for the roadway
system.




5/15/2008                                                                                Page 3 of 47
Economic

Economic benefits of a trail and greenway system to Rock Hill are impressive. These corridors
for recreation enhance property values because natural open spaces and trails are prime
attractions for potential homebuyers. Three out of four homebuyers rated these attributes as
either “essential” or “very important” in their search for the right community. An urban design
that offered a trail and greenway system such as that being proposed by this Master Plan ranked
in the top three items for “community necessities that enhance quality of life.” More than 60
percent of property owners along these corridors have noted an increase in their property values.v

Trails generate tourism and recreation-related spending. The trail-related expenditures for goods
and services, as well as the jobs connected with the sale of these products, are reflected in the
economic health of the community. The money flows not only to and from Rock Hill residents,
but from visitors who will make this city a sought-after destination in their “recreation amenity
migration.”

Environmental

Environmental quality of life in Rock Hill would be enormously enhanced by a trail and
greenway system. They are often constructed along tree-lined lands and these corridors preserve
and protect these areas from development and over-use. Greenways can also serve as stream
buffers that help preserve water quality. Public opinion in this community seems to indicate that
further development needs to be both sensible and sustainable. Any reduction in automobile use
as an environmental boost goes without saying. Providing wise-use recreational opportunities
helps to preserve the small town atmosphere that citizens have said they want to retain for future
generations. Some feel that we are losing touch with our lands and our “sense of place” in it.
Our children are growing up eco-phobic instead of eco-friendly, with virtual lives instead of real
ones. A trail and greenway system is one of the best ways to establish a reconnection with
ourselves, our families, our community, and the natural world around us.


D.     Planning Process and Work Products
The Update Schedule and Process

The Master Plan Update is the product of contributions from citizen committees, various City
departments, local stakeholders, and regional planning partners. These contributors include
Rock Hill’s Trails & Greenways Committee and the following departments: Parks, Recreation,
and Tourism, Planning Services, Development Services, Utilities, Economic Development, and
Public Works; the Catawba Council of Governments (COG); and York County Planning
Department. The following timeline describes the major milestones in the Master Plan update
process:

      October Project Team Meeting – Inventory Update Kickoff          October 12, 2007
Staff responsible (Core Team) for the Trails & Greenways Master Plan Update met with City
department heads on October 12 with an explanation of the need for an update and expected
outcomes of the update process. This collection of department heads and key staff from multiple
City departments is identified as the Project Team. The goal of the kickoff meeting was to
receive input from each department on City and private development plans impacting the trail
network. At this meeting, City departments were charged with informing staff of the update and
5/15/2008                                                                             Page 4 of 47
its goals, and providing feedback from a departmental perspective. This feedback came in the
form an inventory of (re)development corridors, utility concerns, neighborhood focus areas,
future employment/residential hubs, important destinations, major site plans, recreational areas,
and potential obstacles.

        Regular Core Team and City Staff Meetings October 2007 – January 2008
The Trails & Greenways Master Plan Update Core Team was comprised of staff from the Parks,
Recreation, & Tourism (PRT) and Planning Services Departments. These staff members were
responsible for managing all input from stakeholders (both public and private); scheduling and
coordinating all meeting and workshops; and producing a completed master plan. The core team
met several times between September of 2007 and March of 2008. In addition to regular
meetings, staff from the two departments have coordinated with each other in attending and
presenting information during regional meetings.

                    January Project Team Meeting - January 22, 2008
Core Team staff met with the Project Team again in January 2008 to receive approval of the
Trails & Greenways System Inventory Map, a major component of the work plan and update
process. All relevant input and concerns were confirmed and incorporated into the planning
process.

               Presentation to Trails & Greenways Committee - February 4, 2008
Core Team staff held a workshop with the Rock Hill Trails & Greenways Advisory Committee.
The purpose of the workshop was to review the Trails and Greenways System Inventory Map
and receive committee feedback, input, and recommendations. The committee contributed
historical knowledge of trail development in the City, as well as information on current and
future trail locations. The Trails & Greenways Advisory Committee recommended approval of
the inventory map and process.

                Presentation to City Groups and Committees - March 2008
In March of 2008, Core Team staff presented the updated Trails & Greenways Map and other
information to several important City boards and commissions for approval. These groups
included:

           •   Rock Hill Trails & Greenways Advisory Committee (Follow-up presentation)
           •   Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation Quality of Life Group
           •   Rock Hill Accommodations Tax and Tourism Commission
           •   Rock Hill Public Parks and Recreation Commission

In April 2008 the Master Plan update was presented to Rock Hill Planning Commission and City
Council. City Council adopted the updated Master Plan on April 28, 2008.

The final work products resulting from the Trails & Greenways Master Plan Update are the
Trails & Greenways System Map (Appendix A), Inventory List (Appendix B) and the
Implementation Action Plan (Appendix C).

Trails & Greenways System Map and Inventory List

Because the primary focus of the update was to create a comprehensive network of trails, the
Trails & Greenways System Map began as an Inventory Map. This map was created as the
primary reference tool in identifying all existing and planned trail facilities within Rock Hill as
5/15/2008                                                                               Page 5 of 47
well as all significant constraints and considerations, both within and outside of City limits,
which will affect future trail recommendations. The inventory map includes the following:

            •   Trails previously identified in the Master Plan
            •   Sidewalks essential to maintaining an effective trail network
            •   Public and private schools
            •   Important destinations
            •   Upcoming development projects
            •   Streams and environmentally sensitive areas
            •   Transit stops
            •   Utility easements and rights-of-way
            •   Recommended connections
            •   Open space planning

Several overlays were then added to the map to put the physical and geographical features and
the trail network into context. These overlays included:

            •   County Trail System
            •   Neighborhood Plans
            •   Major Destinations
            •   Open Space Focus Areas
            •   Livable City Land Uses
            •   Environmentally Sensitive Areas
            •   Rock Hill Urban Services Area

Recommended connections are the most important element of the inventory map. These trails
(and sidewalks) evolve into proposed trails, as they address previous gaps and missing links
within the trail network. The Core Team identified six criteria used to evaluate the inclusion of
recommended connections within the network. These criteria are:

            •   Connectivity – Filling in gaps/disconnects within the City and coordinating with
                                County and regional initiatives
            •   Creating an “Outer Loop”
            •   Utilizing undevelopable land
            •   Using new and existing easements or rights-of-way
            •   Supporting Rock Hill’s USA and East Corridor Growth Strategy
            •   Utilizing sidewalks at key locations

Trails & Greenways Implementation Action Plan

There is a suggested Implementation Plan which contains all information necessary to budget for
and see individual trails through to construction. The foundation of the implementation plan is
based on analysis of important trail network connections identified in the inventory map and
recommendations by the Trails & Greenways Advisory Committee. Individual trails were
evaluated for length, location, construction materials, and scheduling. The implementation plan
includes recommendations on trail design, placement, prioritization, and funding; as well as
background and recommendations on local and regional coordination.


5/15/2008                                                                            Page 6 of 47
E.     A Word About Safety
Numerous studies have shown that trails do not cause an increase in crime nor do they provide a
haven for drug users.vi A trail with lawful users present is not a welcoming environment for
criminals. The fear that criminals will target properties near trails and use the trails as a getaway
route is simply unfounded based on the experience of communities with trails.

Uniform design and maintenance standards will help ensure the safety of the trail system. A
safety benefit of the trail and greenway system will be to provide safe routes for biking and
walking in areas where people are currently forced to walk or bike on or beside busy roads
without bike and pedestrian accommodations. Rock Hill’s experience with the existing trails has
been that they are generally safe places to be. While assaults do occasionally occur on trails,
such incidents are far more common in residential and commercial areas. Fears of attacks on
trail users can be allayed with common sense solutions such as not using the trails alone or at
night and maintaining awareness of their surroundings at all times.

Like every other state, South Carolina has a Recreational Use Statutevii. Under these statutes, no
landowner, who allows recreation to the public on their land free of charge, is liable for
recreation injuries resulting from mere carelessness. Concerns about the City’s liability should be
no greater than the liability concerns presented by the existing City parks, streets, sidewalks, and
buildings.

In order to avoid any safety, crime, and liability problems, these things should be taken into
account during the design of the trails. Landowners and other stakeholders should be brought
into the planning process and educated on the benefits of trails. Proposed trails should be
reviewed by public safety officials to ensure that potential problems are avoided.


F.     Coordination With Regional Efforts
Regional trail systems offer a means for multiple governmental jurisdictions and private
organizations to achieve numerous desired outcomes, including economic development,
conservation, alternative transportation infrastructure, enhanced quality of life, and regional
cooperation. The trails and greenways network within Rock Hill can be extended beyond the
borders of the City by connecting into regional and statewide trail systems being planned by
other agencies and organizations.

An Urban Services Area (USA) boundary was established as part of the 2000 Livable City Land
Use Plan. In the Spring of 2005, City and County staff collaborated to update the USA boundary
which was later adopted by City Council in 2006. The boundary is intended to be a growth
management tool that provides an outer limit for planned urban growth and allow for the logical
extension of services including parks, trails, and greenways. Existence of this boundary provides
the City with an opportunity to collaborate with York County and new communities as to how
areas will be converted from rural to urban use.

The following sections summarize efforts that are underway in the region relating to trails and
greenways. Many of these efforts extend beyond the Rock Hill City limits as well as beyond the
USA boundary. These regional and statewide efforts provide the City the opportunity to
maximize coordination among agencies, communities, and trail groups.

The South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism (SCPRT) operates the central
trails program for the State. The State Trails Program provides technical assistance, awards and
manages grants, and serves as a clearinghouse for a variety of trail related activity across the
State.

The guiding document for SCPRT is the State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan
(SCORP). This document serves as a guide and informational resource for South Carolina’s
local government agencies as well. The 2008 SCORP is anchored by the following six goals:

   Goal 1:     To continue a planning process for outdoor recreation which provides
               coordination with other agencies and organizations, implements the approved
               plan, and adjusts the plan periodically for the changing needs of the population
               and visitors.

   Goal 2:     To provide the people of South Carolina and its visitors with a balanced and
               comprehensive recreation system of public and private land and sites.

   Goal 3:     To provide South Carolinians and visitors opportunities to understand and enjoy
               the State's historic and natural heritage.

   Goal 4:     To provide to all segments of the population opportunities for outdoor recreation
               experiences and an improved quality of life.

   Goal 5:     To encourage cooperative efforts between various agencies and levels of
               government, between private enterprise and government, and between volunteers
               and resource managers.

   Goal 6:     To encourage sustainable development and give consideration to the local
               economic, social, and natural resource impacts resulting from the location and
               development of recreation areas.

Rock Hill will increase the number of opportunities for SCPRT funding for City projects, and
trail projects in particular, by ensuring that individual projects address each of the goals listed
above.

The South Carolina State Trails Plan entitled “Expanding the Experience” was adopted in 2002.
The plan outlines the benefits of a statewide trail system, sets goals for the system, provides
summary information on existing and proposed trails, and identifies issues to be considered in
trail development.

SCPRT employs a State Trails Coordinator to provide professional assistance to trail groups in
the state. The Coordinator is available to provide guidance and advice on all aspects of trails and
greenways, from construction and maintenance standards to advocacy techniques to fundraising.
Resources for both motorized and non-motorized use of trails are available. The Coordinator
also serves as an advocate for South Carolina trails.

South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR)
The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is the state agency mandated to
protect, conserve, and manage the states’ natural resources. Two conservation programs that are
relative to the Rock Hill Trails and Greenways effort include the Heritage Preserves Program and
the Managed Lands Program.

The Heritage Trust Program was created in 1976 to preserve those natural features and cultural
remains which are fast disappearing as the State grows. The Program's purpose is to inventory,
evaluate and protect endangered plant and animal species and areas of historical, cultural, and
archaeological significance. Over 67,000 acres have been permanently protected by 50 Heritage
Preserves in 25 different counties. The preserves are open for public educational and recreational
uses during daylight hours in accordance with Heritage Preserves regulations. Most have hiking
trails and other opportunities for nature viewing. The Rock Hill Blackjacks Heritage Preserve is
a 291 acre tract that provides permanent protection for the Schweinitz’s Sunflower.

There are four managed tracts in York County that include more than 1,300 acres. Managed
Lands are controlled through ownership, easement, or lease rights.

South Carolina Scenic Rivers Act
The purpose of the State Scenic Rivers Program is to conserve and protect unique and
outstanding river resources throughout South Carolina. To accomplish this purpose, a volunteer,
cooperative, and non-regulatory management program has been created which involves
landowners, community interests, and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) working
together to conserve and protect designated scenic river corridors. Designating a State Scenic
River requires legislative action by the South Carolina General Assembly; however, the
designation process begins at the local level and the DNR seeks the support of the local citizens,
landowners, and the municipal and county governments of the affected counties during the
eligibility process.

A 30-mile segment of the Catawba River is being proposed for designation as a State Scenic
River under the South Carolina Scenic Rivers Act (1989). The study area and the proposed State
Scenic River include the 30-mile river corridor within Chester, Lancaster, and York counties that
begins at the base of the Lake Wylie Dam on the Catawba River and extends down river to the
S.C. Highway #9 Bridge between Lancaster and Chester counties.

The “Catawba River Eligibility Study for the SC Scenic Rivers Program” presents the findings
and recommendations of a scenic river eligibility study conducted in 2007 by the South Carolina
Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), Habitat Protection Section and the Scenic Rivers
Program. This report was reviewed through a public hearing process within the study area in
January 2008. Bill S-1158 is currently being considered by the South Carolina Legislature and is
expected to be approved during the 2008 Legislative Session.

South Carolina Conservation Bank
Signed into law in 2002, the South Carolina Conservation Bank provides funding for protection
of natural resources through the conservation of land across the state. First funded in 2004
through the documentary stamp tax for new construction and property transfers, the bank is
expected to receive between $6 million and $10 million per year to help eligible conservation
organizations purchase land and conservation easements through direct grants and low-interest
loans. Conservation criteria include preservation of significant ecological features or habitat,
threatened or endangered species, historical or archeological resources, significant farm and
5/15/2008                                                                             Page 9 of 47
forest lands, greenways and parklands. Financial criteria require reasonable costs for a project,
taking into consideration the degree to which a project leverages trust funds by including
matching funds or in-kind assets or services from other sources. The Conservation Bank
completed its first round of funding in December 2004, awarding $11 million to protect 25,000
acres, including a 7.73 acre parcel in Rock Hill.

By providing financial support, the Conservation Bank makes it easier for more landowners to
protect property with conservation easements. The Conservation Bank owns no lands. A
landowner may sell conserved property to an eligible trust fund recipient, or sell or donate
conservation easements and retain ownership and traditional use of the land. Qualified trust fund
recipients in South Carolina include the 33 nonprofit land conservation organizations of the
South Carolina Land Trust Network located throughout the state.

South Carolina Bicycle and Pedestrian Program (SCDOT)
The South Carolina Department of Transportation Bicycle and Pedestrian Program is committed
to meeting the on-going challenge of providing better and safer accommodations for people who
choose to walk or cycle. Early in 2002, SCDOT launched a ‘new initiative’ to establish
partnerships to provide more facilities for bicycling and walking in South Carolina. A Bicycle
and Pedestrian Infrastructure Advisory Committee was formed in June 2002, composed of
representatives of the private sector, the General Assembly, other state agencies, and walking
and cycling advocacy groups. This group has now been combined with the Beautification
Advisory Committee to become “The Enhancements Group.”

In February 2003, the South Carolina Department of Transportation Commission directed that
bicycling accommodations should be a routine part of the Department’s planning, design,
construction and operating activities, and will be included in the everyday operations of the
state’s transportation system. As part of this directive, the Commission announced that funds
from the state’s Transportation Enhancement program would be dedicated to providing paved
shoulders on sections of the South Carolina Bicycle Tour Route.

Palmetto Cycling Coalition
The Palmetto Cycling Coalition is an affiliation of the bicycling clubs within the State designed
to promote on and off-road bicycling and bicycling-related issues. Its goals are to foster greater
communication between bicycling clubs, to serve as an advocacy group for bicyclists, and
improve the bicycling environment within the State of South Carolina. The Rock Hill Bicycle
Club is the local Chapter (RHBC). The RHBC serves as a voice for the community by
promoting cycling education to the general public and members serve on the Rock Hill Trails
and Greenways Advisory Committee.


Regional Programs

UNC Charlotte Urban Institute
The University of North Carolina Charlotte Urban Institute’s Land Use and Environmental
Planning division was created in 2002 to incorporate and expand upon the work the Institute had
been doing since 1996 through the Carolinas Land Conservation Network (later known as the
Open Space Institute.)

The Carolinas Land Conservation Network (“CLCN”) was an unincorporated non-profit
organization overseen by a volunteer Board of Trustees and housed at the Institute with a staff of
5/15/2008                                                                           Page 10 of 47
two (an executive director and an administrative assistant) funded by grants, donations and
memberships. CLCN’s mission was to demonstrate that nature and economic prosperity can co-
exist. During its six-year existence, CLCN made significant contributions to regional progress on
open space preservation issues, by providing forums for the region’s open space professionals to
share information and experiences, through public conferences and workshops, and through
collaborative research and planning projects such as the Piedmont Green Plan growth model,
Mountain Island Lake Watershed Project, and the Strategic Regional Open Space Framework. In
2002, CLCN’s Board voted to dissolve itself and to allow its mission to be carried forward as the
Open Space Institute within the Land Use and Environmental Planning division of the UNC
Charlotte Urban Institute.

Since Spring 2002, the Land Use and Environmental Planning division has worked with county
and municipal governments, Councils of Government, federal agencies, state-wide, regional and
local foundations and non-profits, and for-profit businesses on scores of projects. The division’s
projects cover a wide range of topics, from community land use planning to watershed
conservation, to regional growth modeling.

Carolina Thread Trail (CTT)
The Carolina Thread Trail (CTT) is a planned regional network of trails and greenways that will
connect 15 counties and 2.3 million citizens in North and South Carolina, linking people, places,
cities, towns and attractions. South Carolina partners include York County, Rock Hill, York, Fort
Mill, Clover, Tega Cay, and the Nation Ford Land Trust. The CTT will create a permanent
legacy of conservation and will enhance quality of life through community connections, health
and wellness promotion and economic development benefits. The Carolina Thread Trail vision
evolved from a series of meetings between the Foundation For The Carolinas (FFTC) and more
than 40 community and business leaders. This discovery process generated a set of guiding
principles for counties in the Foundation for the Carolinas' footprint. The Trust for Public Land
(TPL) is working in partnership with the FFTC, and the Catawba Lands Conservancy to plan the
trail and provide the technical expertise for the local governments wishing to link to the CTT
system.

The trail's name was inspired by the Carolina region's rich heritage of weaving fabric. This
intricate network of trails will weave together people, communities and nature--connecting
Carolinians for generations to come.

The Carolina Thread Trail will develop over time as communities build trails that will eventually
link parks, green spaces and attractions throughout the region. Not all local trails and greenways
will become part of the Carolina Thread Trail. Like the Carolina's highway systems, the CTT
will develop as a "green interstate" focused on linking local trails and regionally significant
attractions.

The Carolina Thread Trail has begun their mission to build a 15-county “green interstate” by
selecting two counties to host pilot programs, York County, SC and Gaston County, NC.
Although the route for the trail has not yet been established, preliminary plans in York County
are to link several points of regional significance including Nanny’s Mountain and Kings
Mountain State Park. Kings Mountain will provide at least one link to Gaston County via a trail
to Crowder’s Mountain State Park. In addition, the trail is tentatively planned to aid in one of
York County’s most glaring intermodal issues, a safe pedestrian and bike connection across the
Catawba River. The link will likely be made at the location of the Highway 21 Bridge; tying in

5/15/2008                                                                           Page 11 of 47
with the York County Museum, Fort Mill, the Anne Springs Close Greenway, and the Nation
Ford Greenway.

Links to Lancaster, Chester and Mecklenburg Counties will also be made. Preliminary plans are
to connect to Andrew Jackson State Park in Lancaster County, Landsford Canal State Park in
Chester County, and into Mecklenburg County by way of the Little Sugar Creek Greenway at the
axis of Lancaster, Mecklenburg, and York Counties. Potential routes into Chester County are
currently being explored in depth.

Carolina Piedmont Green Initiative
American Forests initiated a multi phase project in the Central Carolina region to document the
values of green infrastructure, build capacity for the community to use the green infrastructure
data for growth and development decision making. The project documented select areas of the
region's changing landscape with satellite imagery from the years of 1984 and 2003. American
Forests used high resolution imagery to prepare a digital GIS-based map of the green
infrastructure in select areas. Green Infrastructure includes trees and other vegetation together
with their complex interaction with soil, air, and water. Green infrastructure is a significant asset
that was not previously documented as part of the region’s infrastructure. American Forests used
this data along with their CITYgreen GIS software to quantify ecosystem values. When
complete, this data will provide local elected officials with tools to better gauge the benefits of
the region’s green infrastructure for future planning decisions.

Initial project partners included : The Catawba College Center for the Environment, the City of
Charlotte, the City of Salisbury, Centralina and Catawba Regional Councils of Government,
Mecklenburg County, the Charlotte Tree Advisory Commission, York County, and the UNC
Charlotte Urban Institute.


Conservation and Land Trusts

York County Forever
One of the major planning efforts undertaken by York County to address open space is the
establishment of the York County Forever Commission in 1998. Some of the goals established
for York County Forever include the promotion and conservation of natural resources,
preservation of prime farmland, promotion of outdoor recreation and the preservation of views
and open space. These goals are closely related to the identification and preservation of open
space. The Commission has the authority to enter into land acquisition negotiations on behalf of
York County, although the organization has no authority to own land or property easements. The
properties to be targeted for acquisition must be related to one or more various open space,
recreational, wildlife or historic categories, as outlined in the enabling ordinance.

Palmetto Conservation Foundation (PCF)
Since 1989, the PCF, its members and supporters have brought a research-based, non-adversarial
approach to conservation, preservation, and recreation issues in South Carolina. The mission of
the Palmetto Conservation Foundation is to conserve South Carolina's natural and cultural
resources, preserve historic buildings and landmarks, and promote outdoor recreation with trails
and greenways.

Operating as a statewide nonprofit organization with offices in Columbia and Spartanburg, PCF
seeks to build widespread consensus on the most appropriate ways for South Carolina's
5/15/2008                                                                              Page 12 of 47
communities to grow and prosper while maintaining local character and quality of life. PCF
strives to form community consensus on long-term, sustainable development patterns that can
provide lasting benefits for citizens while embracing the need for growth.

Nation Ford Land Trust (NFLT)
NFLT is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in the York
County by preserving the open space, natural beauty, and scenic heritage. The goals of the land
trust are to control the use of land by acquiring interest in significant property, to educate the
public to the necessity, importance, benefits, and impact of open spaces, and to operate
exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

Since its founding in 1989, Nation Ford has worked in a cooperative, non-adversarial manner to
protect over 4,530 of the most unique acres in York County. By forging true partnerships with
business, governments, private landowners and other non-profit organizations, Nation Ford Land
Trust has become recognized as one of the southeastern United States leading conservation
organizations. Examples of NFLT conservation efforts include the acquisition and protection of
buffers along the Catawba River, protection of Nanny’s Mountain, and several areas of
importance to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.

Katawba Valley Land Trust (KVLT)
KVLT is a private, non-profit organization. The Katawba Valley Land Trust is concerned
largely with the longest remaining free-flowing section of the river in York, Chester and
Lancaster Counties. With the rapid growth of the Charlotte-Rock Hill urban area, this section of
the river is coming under increasing pressure from development. The tributaries of the river are
equally as critical, as they bring all the pollutants and silt from developing areas into the river.

The Land Trust works closely with the South Carolina Catawba River Task Force in seeking to
preserve the beauty and natural resources of the Catawba for future generations.


Regional and Local Coordination Recommendations

The Rock Hill Trails and Greenways Master Plan establishes a comprehensive and achievable
action plan for community leaders to create and maintain a safe, accessible, and highly functional
trail and greenway system that is fully integrated with existing and proposed regional efforts.

The Master Plan provides community leaders with both short- and long-term recommendations
and the framework to systematically expand the existing trails and greenways network to
promote connectivity. Coordination of efforts will allow the City to:

   •   Provide safe, healthy, and economical transportation options for all ages, abilities, and
       incomes as well as close-to-home recreational opportunities
   •   Contribute to the region’s efforts to improve air quality, and
   •   Constitute a critical element of overall efforts to improve the community’s quality of life.

To achieve this, the City of Rock Hill should:

   •   Maximize coordination among agencies, communities, and trail groups.
   •   Assist agencies, communities, and trail groups with trail planning efforts.

5/15/2008                                                                             Page 13 of 47
   •   Identify additional sources of funding and develop grant applications and other necessary
       information to compete for new funds.
   •   Continue identification of new trail projects and opportunities as they emerge.
   •   Support local communities’ efforts to preserve and/or create trails through local land use,
       planning, and zoning strategies.
   •   Ensure that trail projects that are under development progress in a timely fashion and
       with adequate funding to complete project as designed.
   •   Support the identification and development of new and/or improved trail connections to
       adjacent land uses.

II. Existing Facilities
There has been progress in trail construction since the adoption of the original Trails &
Greenways Master Plan in 2003. As of the completion of this Master Plan update, several trail
segments are underway including St. Anne’s, South Pointe (Phase I completed in January 2008),
and Rawlinson Road trails, totaling two (2) miles. There are several existing facilities, including
trails, sidewalks, and a canoe trail, some of which serve as significant portions of the trail
network. These facilities have been constructed by the City, neighborhood groups, and private
interests. A listing of these facilities follows. The existing trails and sidewalks that comprise the
trails and greenways system are identified on the Rock Hill Area Trails System Map in Appendix
A and the Rock Hill Area Trails Inventory List in Appendix B.

B.     Sidewalks
Over the last five years, the City has promoted the construction of a network of sidewalks
throughout the jurisdiction; for the purposes of this Trails and Greenways Master Plan Update,
sidewalks at key locations are being identified as integral components of the trails system. Eight
existing sidewalks, totaling 22.2 miles, are considered essential to maintaining connectivity
throughout the trail system. These facilities are listed below:

Anderson Road Sidewalk:              1.8 miles, along Anderson Road from US-21 to Albright

C.     Other Trails
Canoe Trail

With the completion of River Park, a canoe trail has been established along the Catawba River.
The trail begins at the Lake Wylie Dam access point off of Sutton Road, continues
approximately six miles to the River Park canoe access, and then continues 16 miles to Lansford
Canal State Park.


Saluda Bike Route

The “Saluda Bike Trail” is essentially a 3.6 mile bike route which winds through the
neighborhood(s) immediately surrounding Saluda Street and the Saluda Corridor, Southwest of
downtown and within the City limits. The bike trail is distinguished by signage along the route.
The bike route begins at the intersection of Johnston and Hampton streets, winds through the
residential areas west of Saluda, and intersects Saluda Street at Blake Street. The route picks up
again at the intersection of Saluda Street and Midvale Street, loops back through the residential
areas east of Saluda, and terminates at Elizabeth and Black streets.




5/15/2008                                                                           Page 17 of 47
III. Proposed Facilities
This Master Plan update focuses on both planned and proposed facilities. The facilities can be
grouped into the five categories: multi-purpose trails, greenway trails, park trails, sidewalks as
trails, and bikeways. Each facility type is defined in this section and public acceptance policies
are outlined at the end of this section. Design guidelines for the various facility types are
discussed in Section IV.

Six criteria were used in establishing new trail recommendations:
• Connectivity – filling in missing links to the existing trail system and extending the system to
    County and regional initiatives;
• Opportunities to create an “Outer Loop” greenway;
• Utilizing undevelopable land;
• Using existing city easement or rights-of-way;
• Implementation of the East Corridor Growth Strategy; and
• Incorporating sidewalks as proposed trails at key locations.

Approximately 26.55 miles of greenway trails, 31.64 miles of multi-purpose trails and 20.85
miles of sidewalk are proposed by this plan. The proposed trails and sidewalks that comprise the
trails and greenways system are identified on the Rock Hill Area Trails and Greenways System
Map in Appendix A and the Rock Hill Area Trails and Greenways System Inventory List in
Appendix B. The Inventory List provides a description of each proposed trail, greenway or
sidewalk and its location.


A.     Proposed Trail Facilities
Multi-Purpose Trails

Multi-purpose trails connect major destinations and serve as the backbone of the trail and
greenway system. These facilities are expected to be the most heavily used trails in the system
and will be built to accommodate the widest possible range of users. These trails will attract
users from across the region, making Rock Hill a destination for trail enthusiasts. A summary of
the proposed 15 multi-purpose trails follows:

1. Albright Trail:                   2.1 miles, along Anderson Road from York Tech to Hwy 5

Greenway Trails (Outer Loop)

Greenway trails connect major destinations to parks, open spaces, and other natural amenities.
Not only will greenway trails serve as a recreational resource, they will also be designed to
enhance the city’s environmental and economic resources as well as functioning as an
educational resource to promote water quality, natural resource conservation and the preservation
of wildlife habitat. The Catawba River is envisioned to serve as the spine of the greenway
system and form a portion of an “outer loop” greenway surrounding the city. Greenway trails
will follow alongside the various creeks connecting the “outer loop” greenway to the proposed
Carolina Thread Trail and multi-purpose trails and other destinations within the city limits.

A summary of the proposed ten greenway trails follows:

Park Trails

There are currently no proposed trails to be located within parks; however, any future parks
should be planned to include park trails and connect to the trail system.

Sidewalks as Trails

Many of the main roads that carry vehicle traffic through the City need to be retrofitted with
sidewalks to provide an opportunity for people to walk safely to their destinations if they so
choose. Where they do not exist, sidewalks should be installed to connect existing shopping
centers with the surrounding residential areas. Sidewalks should be installed on all new streets
and when property is developed adjacent to a road without sidewalks, the developer should be
required to install sidewalks along the property frontage.

When determining new sidewalk locations, areas within ½ mile of schools should be given
priority. Bus service is not provided to children that live within 1½ mile of their school.
Providing sidewalks in these areas will provide safe routes for children to walk to school and
reduce vehicular traffic associated with student drop-offs.

Many of the existing sidewalks and trails present barriers to handicapped persons. There are also
some basic safety considerations that were not taken into account when the sidewalks were built.
The following accessibility and safety improvements are recommended:

•   Crosswalks- All new sidewalks and trails should have marked crosswalks at all street
    crossings. Existing crosswalks must be well maintained.

•   Curb ramps- Curb ramps are a must to provide wheelchair access to the sidewalk and trail
    system. Wherever crosswalks are provided, wheelchair ramps should be provided as well.
    There are many sidewalks in the City that do not have curb ramps. These barriers need to be
    inventoried and a plan developed to retrofit them with ramps.

•   Signalization- Pedestrian signalization needs to be incorporated in all new signalized
    intersections. Pedestrian signals should also be added to existing signalized intersections that
    do not have them when the signals are upgraded. Signals on multi-lane roads must be set to
    provide adequate time for pedestrians to cross all lanes of traffic.

•   Planting strips- Sidewalks that are adjacent to the back of the curb should be avoided. A
    planting strip of at least three feet should be provided between the back of the curb and the
    sidewalk. Provision of planting strips creates a buffer between the sidewalk users and
    vehicular traffic and avoids problems such as placing mailboxes within the path of the
    sidewalk. Plants that block sight lines at intersections and driveways must not be allowed
    within the planting strips.

A summary of the 15 proposed sidewalks to be included in the trail network follows:

1. Adnah Church Road Sidewalk:                0.8 miles, along Adnah Church Road from Tools
                                              Fork Creek Trail to York Road in conjunction with
                                              planned realignment.

Bikeways

Bike lanes - Some of the primary multi-purpose corridors shown on the plan map will include
bike lanes. Bike lanes are appropriate in suburban areas where there are longer distances
between destinations and sidewalks are not practical. Several of the road improvement projects
5/15/2008                                                                         Page 22 of 47
proposed through the York County One Cent Sales Tax program plan to incorporate bike lanes,
however funding issues have arisen which may jeopardize the inclusion of these bike facilities.
The need for bike facilities will be considered with the upcoming Rock Hill-Fort Mill Area
Transportation Study (RFATS) Long Range Transportation Plan as well as the 2010
Transportation Element of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. “Bike Lane” signage should be
installed along roadway facilities with clearly marked bike lanes.

Wider outside lanes - Wider outside lanes should be provided on multi-lane streets that do not
have any other type of bike or pedestrian facilities. The inside lanes of these roads can be striped
so that they are narrower than the outside lanes providing more room along the curb for cyclists
and pedestrians. This could be accomplished on some streets simply by re-striping them. The
ability for roads to accommodate wider outside lanes should be evaluated before any resurfacing
or re-striping project is undertaken. Signage should be installed indicating that the roadway is a
“Share the Road” facility.

Paved shoulders - On streets with no other bike facilities, a paved shoulder should be provided
as a minimal accommodation for cyclists. Paved shoulders provide the added benefit of a safety
zone for motorists who would otherwise run off the edge of the pavement and possibly lose
control if the paved shoulder were not present. Paved shoulders should be included in the
resurfacing of all roads that do not have other bike facilities.

Other Trail Types

Other types of trails that may be a part of the system in the future include mountain bike trails,
hiking trails, equestrian trails, canoe trails, all-terrain vehicle trails, and motorcycle trails. These
trail types must be clearly labeled for their intended use on maps and in the field to avoid safety
problems associated with conflicting user types. These trail types are not shown on the plan map
because they will be developed as opportunities arise and their location is not known at this time.


B.      Support Facilities
Bike Racks

Bicycle owners must have a convenient place to park and secure their bikes. Bike racks should
be provided at all shopping centers, parks, government facilities, and other destination points.

Bike Lockers

Bike lockers are typically provided at locations where bicycles are left for extended periods of
time, such as mass transit stops. Locations for future bike lockers should be identified as a
transit system is developed.


Shelters

Shelters should be provided along the trail corridors to give the users a spot to stop and rest or
seek shelter from inclement weather. Shelters can also serve as patrol stations for law
enforcement or volunteer trail marshals. Shelters may include restrooms, water fountains,
bulletin boards, and benches.
5/15/2008                                                                                 Page 23 of 47
Emergency Call Boxes

In remote areas, emergency call boxes should be installed to help ensure safety of the trail users.
Call boxes help deter criminal activity and provide a link to emergency services in case of injury.

Signage

All trails should be signed in accordance with responsible trail building practices. Signs should
include information such as hours that the trail is open for use, type of users that are prohibited
(i.e. no motorized vehicles), and directional signs at trail intersections.

Trailhead

There may be a need for trailheads for some trails to provide access at remote locations.
Trailheads will include a parking area and other facilities such as bulletin boards, trash
receptacles, and restrooms. Bollards should be installed to prevent unauthorized vehicle access
to the trail.


C.     Public Acceptance Policies
Trails, sidewalks, bike lanes, and other facilities may be eligible for public acceptance, but only
if they are built to the City’s standards. Developers or others who wish to construct a trail and
then turn it over to the City for maintenance must work closely with City staff during the
development of the trail to ensure that it will be eligible for acceptance by the City.

Constructing a trail to City standards does not guarantee public acceptance for maintenance by
the City. The City of Rock Hill reserves the right to accept or decline part, or all, of a trail as is
deemed appropriate.




5/15/2008                                                                                Page 24 of 47
IV. Trail Design & Maintenance
Design and maintenance standards must be established in order to create a viable trail and
greenway system. These standards will ensure that the trails are built properly and that they are
kept in good condition.

The following design guidelines for Rock Hill trails will serve to meet the needs of all users in
varying conditions. The standards describe how to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists along
with other users, in most environments, but cannot address all possible situations. It does
provide, however, a foundation upon which each segment can be developed to incorporate
specific individual needs and conditions. The guidelines represent an effort to provide sound
design principles in order to attain a consistent, safe and enjoyable Rock Hill trail experience.


A.     Trail Categories
As depicted in Table 4.1, the Trails & Greenways Master Plan establishes four primary
categories of trails that will be used to develop the overall system and is planned as a multi-use
system of trails, for walkers, bikers and the disabled—park trail, greenway trail, multi-purpose
trail, and sidewalk. There will be, however, segments that will be inaccessible to the biker or the
disabled due to unalterable site conditions, such as the steep wooded trails at River Park. While
this type of trail segment is the exception, there will be other areas with constraints that could
limit the usage because of conditions such as steep grades or limited space for a wide enough
trail to accommodate different users. Signage and maps will designate where the trail is
specifically limited to pedestrians and where there are other special conditions for use.

                                   Table 4.1: Trail Categories

     Category                    Users                                 Context

Park Trail            Pedestrian / Bicycle only   Internal to individual parks

Greenway Trail        Pedestrian / Bicycle only   Within natural areas; adjacent to water features

Multi-Purpose Trail   Pedestrian / Bicycle only   Varies based on siting

Sidewalk              Pedestrian only             Incorporated within the street network



B.     Design Guidelines
The City has established construction standards for sidewalks and trails that are provided in lieu
of sidewalks. These standards are included in Article 7 of the City’s Zoning Ordinance. Table
4.2 of this document details the recommended design guidelines for the four primary categories
of trails.

Trail Section Details
The following graphic rendering illustrates the general design guidelines for a typical multi-use
trail cross-section:




                   Figure 4.1: Typical Multi-Use Trail Cross-Section

Greenway trails should be given additional consideration in their design and construction. Most
greenways contain trails, which enhance existing recreational opportunities, provide routes for
alternative transportation, and improve the overall quality of life in an area. Greenway trails can
be paved or unpaved, and can be designed to accommodate a variety of trail users, including
bicyclists, walkers, hikers, joggers, skaters, horseback riders, and those confined to wheelchairs.

Greenway trails should be located no less than 25 ft from a stream, unless constructed within an
existing or proposed utility easement. Greenway trails within the Streamside (as permitted) or
Managed Use Zones should be constructed with permeable surfaces and the use of petroleum-
based materials within the Streamside Zone is strongly discouraged. The following graphic
illustrates the typical greenway trail cross-section:




5/15/2008                                                                            Page 27 of 47
                   Figure 4.2: Typical Greenway Trail Cross-Section

Vegetative clearing needed for greenway trails varies depending on the width of the trail. The
minimum width for clearing and grubbing should extend at least 1ft on each side of the trail.
Selective thinning increases sight lines and distances and enhances the safety of the trail user.
This practice includes removal of underbrush and limbs to create open pockets within a forest
canopy, but does not include the removal of the forest canopy itself. The following graphic
depicts that typical greenway trail vegetation clearing cross-section:




         Figure 4.3: Typical Greenway Trail Vegetation Clearing Guidelines




5/15/2008                                                                           Page 28 of 47
Trail Construction Standards
Trail construction standards are specified in Article 7 of the Zoning Ordinance. In order for a
trail to be publicly used and maintained, it must be constructed according to the standards shown
in Figure 7-A(2), Standards for Public Trails, of the Ordinance.


C.      External Influences
While these guidelines have been developed for Rock Hill, they are based on the current state of
the practice and reflect the experience of professionals knowledgeable in accommodating
pedestrians, bicyclists and other potential trail users. Where possible, ADA (Americans with
Disabilities Act) accessibility guidelines have been followed. Where federal and state funding is
provided to construct the trail, certain standards also may be required. These other standards and
guidelines include AASHTO (American Association of State Highway and Transportation
Officials) standards, SCDOT (South Carolina Department of Transportation) regulations and
ADA requirements.

When the trail is in design, City staff or a consulting engineer will have to assist and make
recommendations regarding the need to adhere to AASHTO standards, SCDOT regulations and
ADA requirements.

•    ADA: If ADA Accessibility Guidelines are to be adhered to, the components, which must be
     evaluated for compliance, include the longitudinal slope, railings, the need for ramps with
     railings, drainage structure grates and signage.

•    AASHTO: In specific conditions, such as where the trail intersects with a state or municipal
     road, AASHTO standards may be required.

•    SCDOT: In specific locations, SCDOT regulations may have to be followed.


D.      Site Conditions
Site conditions must be considered during trail planning, design and construction. These include
the following:

•    Soil Conditions, Including Fill: Some locations designated for trails are composed of wet
     or unstable soils while other locations will be in areas of fill. Therefore, footings and paving
     materials must account for the varied soil conditions to achieve stability and longevity.
     Geotextile material may be needed for the trail itself in selected soil conditions.

•    Waterfront Conditions and Riparian Buffers: The unique waterfront environment must
     be considered when constructing along Lake Wylie, the Catawba River, perennial streams,
     intermittent streams, and wetlands. Environmentally-friendly trail systems are recommended
     to maintain the integrity of these environmentally sensitive areas. Certain limitations on trail



5/15/2008                                                                              Page 29 of 47
    location as well as the type of materials used in trail construction may be necessary.
    Permeable, non-petroleum based materials should be used in proximity to waterbodies.

•   Utility Easements and Rights-of-Way: Utility easements and rights-of-way often make
    excellent trail corridors. Particular care should be given to protect utility equipment and
    service lines when siting trails to maintain the integrity of the utility.

•   Limited or Difficult Accessibility for Construction and Maintenance: Some areas will be
    difficult to access. For example, materials may need to be brought in small loads to the site.
    Since repair and maintenance may be difficult, an initial investment in high-grade material is
    recommended.

•   Anticipated Heavy Usage: Because of the anticipated heavy usage, material for the trail
    system must be durable, strong, stable and tolerant of heavy wear.

Maintenance

The trail system must be well maintained to remain viable. Maintenance of the primary trail
corridors should be the responsibility of the City. The trail system will be a part of the City’s
infrastructure just like the streets, parks, and utilities that the City currently maintains. The City
may be able to turn over some maintenance responsibilities, such as litter removal, to groups that
are willing to participate in an “adopt-a-trail” program. This program could be administered the
same way as the existing “adopt-a-street” program.

There may be some trails that feed into the City’s trail system that are privately maintained.
These trails may be maintained by homeowners associations, developers, or individuals. When
these trails are established, the City should require someone to be held responsible for
maintenance in perpetuity.




5/15/2008                                                                               Page 30 of 47
V.     Implementation Strategies
A.     Trails and Greenways Advisory Committee
Strategy 1: Continue to Utilize the Trails and Greenways Advisory Committee to Implement
the Trails and Greenways Master Plan

The Trails and Greenways Committee shall ensure implementation of the plan and develop a list
of priorities annually. Committee members will serve three-year staggered terms.


B.     New Development Requirements
Strategy 2: Require Trails and Sidewalks as Part of New Development

Developers shall be required to construct and dedicate trails when developing property
containing trail corridors that have been identified on the plan map. In addition, when a
proposed development site is located within ½ mile of an existing or planned public park, school,
greenway, existing trail, or other major public amenity, the City may require the developer to
provide a pedestrian connection though a site which will ensure future access to the amenity.
The trail may be dedicated to the City once a linkage to the trails system can be provided and it
has been added to the plan map.

Developers shall also be required to install sidewalks along existing streets when developing
property adjacent to streets without sidewalks. These sidewalks shall be required in addition to
the sidewalks and/or trails provided within the development.

Another option the City may want to consider in certain situations is fee-in-lieu. When
immediate trail construction is not advisable due to imminent construction in the area or specific
factors, the City, at its discretion, may want to consider the acceptance of an approved fee-in-lieu
of the trail construction – to be allocated for trail construction at a later date. The associated
easement or right-of-way for the trail segment would still be dedicated.


C.     Road Improvement Requirements
Strategy 3: Require Facilities in Conjunction with Road Improvements

Sidewalks

When determining new sidewalk locations, areas within 1½ mile of schools should be given
priority. Bus service is not provided to children that live within 1½ mile of their school.

Where they do not exist, sidewalks should be installed to connect existing shopping centers with
the surrounding residential areas. Sidewalks should be installed on all new streets and added to
existing streets in conjunction with road improvement projects. To be recognized as a trail,
sidewalks must connect to the greater trail network.




5/15/2008                                                                             Page 31 of 47
Bike lanes

Bike lanes should be constructed on streets that are suited to them when the street is resurfaced
or widened. Bike lanes could be established on some of the wider streets simply by re-striping
them with bike lanes. The ability for roads to accommodate bike lanes should be evaluated
before any resurfacing or re-striping project is undertaken.

Wider outside lanes with re-striping

Wider outside lanes should be provided on multi-lane streets that do not have any other type of
bike or pedestrian facilities. The inside lanes of these roads can be striped so that they are
narrower than the outside lanes so that more room is provided along the curb for cyclists and
pedestrians. This could be accomplished on some streets simply by re-striping them. The ability
for roads to accommodate wider outside lanes should be evaluated before any resurfacing or re-
striping project is undertaken.

Paved Shoulders

Paved shoulders should be included in the resurfacing of all roads that do not have other bike or
pedestrian facilities.


D.     Utility Rights-of-way
Strategy 4: Adopt a Policy of Planning and Constructing Trails within City-Owned Utility
Rights-of-way

The City should pursue donation of rights-of-way for trail corridors. Where donation is not
feasible, right-of-way purchase may be necessary.

Utility Easements

Existing utility rights-of way that are owned by the City are potential trail locations. Where
proposed trails identified on the trail plan map are located within an existing utility right-of-way,
the City should coordinate with existing property owners to obtain new or amended right-of-way
agreements that allow public trails within existing easements. If any proposed trail identified on
the trail plan map or potential trail connection is located within a newly proposed City right-of-
way or easement, a “multi-purpose” right-of-way and easement agreement that includes a
provision for public trails should be executed.


E.     Environmentally-Friendly Trails
Strategy 5: Ensure That Trails Located Within Environmentally Sensitive Areas Such as
Riparian Buffers are Environmentally-Friendly

Because greenways within riparian buffers also serve to protect natural habitats, improve water
quality and reduce the impacts of flooding in floodplain areas, greater consideration must be
given in the design of greenway trails to reduce potential environmental impacts. The following




5/15/2008                                                                              Page 32 of 47
measures should be taken to ensure trails in environmentally sensitive areas follow the City’s
natural resource conservation and protection objectives:

Selective Clearing of Vegetation for Shoreline Access Paths
Trees and brush may be selectively removed for the purpose of installing a pervious footpath
providing direct access to the shoreline or permitted use. Only the minimal alteration of
vegetation necessary to provide access shall be considered acceptable; clear cutting is not
permitted. The pathway within the Streamside and Managed Use Zones must be pervious:
vegetated with grasses and mowed, surfaced with crushed stone or mulch, or constructed using a
porous pavement system. Pathways within the streamside zone shall follow a meandering, but
direct, path that does not promote erosion. A permit for the removal of such trees and brush
must be obtained prior to construction.

Riparian Buffer Zone Descriptions and Permitted Activities
       o Within the Streamside Zone, limited passive recreational uses may be permitted.
         Trail spurs to lookouts, for environmental education or wildlife habitat protection,
         and preservation of natural areas and scenic resources, may be permitted. Non-
         motorized recreational or greenway trails may be permitted if they are located within
         public or private utility easements and constructed using only natural or pervious
         surfaces. Non-petroleum based construction materials are recommended within the
         streamside zone;
       o Within the Managed Use Zone, passive recreational uses which maintain the natural
         topography and vegetation, such as non-motorized recreational or greenway trails
         constructed with natural or pervious surfaces, may be permitted; and
       o Within the Upland Zone, passive recreational uses such as non-motorized recreational
         or greenway trails constructed with pervious or impervious materials may be
         permitted.


F.     Trail Coordination
Strategy 6: Coordinate Trail Planning Efforts

Because many of the proposed trail segments fall within multiple jurisdictions, it is important
that the City work with York County, Rock Hill School District, and other relevant agencies to
coordinate trail planning efforts to ensure consistency with the proposed trail inventory provided
in Appendix B. It is essential to the success of the trail network that York County and other
regional agencies incorporate the City’s proposed trails into their trails and greenways initiatives.

Similarly, the City will continue to coordinate trail network planning efforts with the Rock Hill
School District. This coordination will take into account school siting, sidewalk, and trail
location, and may grow into a Safe Routes to School program. Rock Hill School District 3
should designate a representative to work with the City’s Trails & Greenways Advisory
Committee on coordination activities.




5/15/2008                                                                              Page 33 of 47
G.     “Adopt-a-Trail”
Strategy 7: Implement an “Adopt-a-Trail” Program

As the City continues to expand its trail network, it may be necessary to find other ways to offset
some of the labor costs incurred for trail maintenance. The City may be able to turn over some
maintenance responsibilities, such as litter removal, to groups that are willing to participate in an
“adopt-a-trail” program. This program could be administered the same way as the existing
“adopt-a-street” program.


H.     Bicycle-Friendly Community
Strategy 8: Develop a Bicycle-Friendly Community Program

Bicycle plans are an increasingly common method for government authorities to outline their
strategy for accommodating and encouraging bicycle use. These planning documents offer the
strategic framework to implement bicycle initiatives in a manner consistent with government
requirements and objectives.

The RFATS 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and the Transportation Element of
the City’s 2010 Comprehensive Plan will incorporate bicycle transportation strategies. To
effectively promote cycling, these strategies should mesh various policy areas such as road and
bike path construction, bicycle accommodation on public transport systems, traffic safety,
mobility education and public relations. Policies should address the five categories established
by the League of American Bicyclists as part of their Bicycle Friendly Community Campaign:
        1.     Engineering – what has been built to promote cycling in the community, the
               availability of bike parking, designated lanes, signals and the connectivity of both
               the off/on-road networks.
        2.     Encouragement – the promotion and encouragement of bicycling through events
               and campaigns.
        3.     Evaluation and Planning – systems that cities have in place to measure current
               programs and take appropriate steps to plan for the future.
        4.     Education – the amount of education there is available for both cyclists and
               motorists including bike maps.
        5.     Enforcement- if the community uses enforcement to encourage cyclists and
               motorists to share the road safely, and the existence of bicycling related laws.



I.     Prioritizing Trails
Strategy 9: Consider a Ranking System to Identify Trail Priorities

It is strongly recommended that a ranking criteria matrix be developed to help City officials set
trail priorities. These criteria should be objective in nature and reflect the desire to thoughtfully
consider the City’s goals and objectives in regard to the development of trails and greenways.
Implementing such a prioritization system will ensure that City resources are used more
efficiently and construction of the trail network is phased appropriately.



5/15/2008                                                                              Page 34 of 47
J.     Design Guidelines
Strategy 10: Amend the Zoning Ordinance to Reflect the Trail Construction Standards
Recommended in the Trails and Greenways Master Plan Update

In order for a trail to be publicly used and maintained, it must be constructed according to the
standards specified in the Zoning Ordinance Article 7, Figure 7-A(2), Standards for Public
Trails. These standards are not consistent with Section IV.B, Design Guidelines of this Master
Plan Update. A Zoning Ordinance amendment should be processed adopting the design
standards to ensure consistency in trail standards.


K.     Implementation Action Plan
Strategy 11: Develop and Adopt an Implementation Action Plan

In order to effectively develop a comprehensive trail system, an implementation plan indicating
the proposed trails, costs, and potential funding sources must be identified. A suggested
Implementation Action Plan is attached to this Plan (see Appendix C).


L.     Ensure Proper Maintenance of Trails & Sidewalks within Network
Strategy 12: Develop a System for Ensuring that All Constructed Trails and Sidewalks within
the Trail Network are Well-Maintained.

An effective and efficient trail system must be fully maintained, even as that system expands. In
order to ensure that constructed trails and sidewalks identified as legs of the trails and greenway
system are properly maintained, a plan for identifying and addressing maintenance needs is
recommended. This will require coordination between Rock Hill’s Public Works Department,
which is responsible for sidewalk maintenance, and PRT Department, which is responsible for
trail and park maintenance. The maintenance plan should include a schedule for sidewalk and
trail inspection; methods, tools, and materials for maintenance work; and potential funding
sources.

                 Rock Hill Area Trails and Greenways
                     Implementation Action Plan

Implementation means putting into action ideas, plans and priorities that have been carefully
developed. In the case of executing a trails and greenways plan, implementation entails
presenting a clear, coherent system of prioritizing, financing and scheduling the facilities that
will make up the overall trail system. To better understand the scope of the plan, the following
table was created to provide an overview of the City of Rock Hill’s 67 trail and sidewalk projects
(see Appendix B) and their various stages of development, ranging from completed to proposed.

                        Table A.1: Trail & Sidewalk Projects Summary

                                                Approximate Length (Miles)

            Park Trail (11)            10.03              0                0        10.03

            Sidewalk (23)               22.2              0           20.85         43.05

                Totals >>>             46.44            2.1           79.04       127.58


Of the total 127.58 miles of existing and proposed trails and sidewalks, 48.54 miles or 38% are
either completed or under construction. The remaining 79.04 miles or 62% are proposed for
inclusion in the plan. For the purposes of implementation, the focus will be on the proposed
trails. Therefore, a better understanding of these projects and how they contribute to one another
and the City’s goals and objectives is necessary.

Rock Hill has a long history of budgeting for capital projects. This responsible approach has
served the city well over the years and may be readily applied to the challenge of financing the
many projects that comprise the Trails and Greenways Master Plan.

Information Resources

A companion to the comprehensive trail inventory prepared by the City staff is the full-color
map. This community-wide map not only provides a geographic reference for the trail system but
is a fully-integrated, GIS-based resource that will aid in setting priorities for trail construction
projects. In fact, work is underway (and will likely continue) to identify opportunities to connect
gaps in the trail system. Another excellent source of information is the City staff from the Parks,



5/15/2008                                                                               Page 42 of 47
Recreation & Tourism (PRT) Department. This department is primarily responsible for planning,
constructing and maintaining Rock Hill’s trails and greenways. A close and on-going
relationship with PRT is vital to the success of the City’s trails and greenways.

As mentioned earlier, timing the construction of trails with road improvement projects is already
underway under the York County One Cent Sales Tax program. In addition, City staff will
ensure that developers are apprised of trail plans when land development proposals are submitted
for review so that trails can be integrated into these development projects. These two
opportunities are effective ways to make use of financial resources from outside the city budget
to build significant portions of the trail system.

Financial Resources

Using the comprehensive inventory and interviews with Parks, Recreation & Tourism staff, the
composite picture of how the many pieces fit together becomes more evident. Presently, there are
three basic funding sources—city, state and federal—as outlined in the city budget. The city
revenue source is further defined as operating budget, hospitality tax and Red River tax
increment. Table A.2 shows the various revenue categories and that the total budgeted revenues
for the 10-year capital budget exceed $3.4 million.

        Table A.2: Capital Budget Funding Sources (FY2008/09 – FY2017/18)

                                    Funding Source                     TOTAL

                      New Sidewalks                                  $ 675,000
                      Greenway Project(s)                            $ 1,000,000

                    Hospitality Tax Revenue
                     Greenway Project(s)                             $ 1,000,000

                    Red River Tax Increment                          $ 100,000

                    Federal Grant
                      Greenway Project(s)                            $ 400,000

                    SC Trails Grant
                      Greenway Project(s)                            $ 300,000


                               Total Budgeted Revenues               $ 3,475,000



Another significant contributor is the York County One Cent Sales Tax program. This
countywide road improvement program includes several projects in the Rock Hill area that will
integrate new and/or improved pedestrian and bicycle facilities along with the road construction
activities. Because the trail or sidewalk will be incorporated into the individual road projects, it is


5/15/2008                                                                                Page 43 of 47
 difficult to provide a dollar figure for projects incorporated into the One Cent Sales Tax
 Program.

 Through coordination with regional efforts, some funding may also be available through the
 Carolina Thread Trail planning and construction processes. This funding will be dependant on
 the location of City trails and the availability of these trails to connect to the larger Thread Trail
 system.

 A similar review of capital expenditures revealed that over the same 10-year period, $1,849,000
 has been programmed to date. Therefore, approximately $1,626,000 is available for funding the
 40 projects listed as proposed or recommended in the trail inventory.

 Construction Cost Estimates

 The following table provides the cost per linear foot for each approved trail material based on the
 width of the trail section1. These costs are meant as a planning tool only and may vary
 considerably based on several factors, including terrain, material availability and inflation. In
 addition, the estimates account for labor and materials but do not cover engineering or design
 costs.

                                                               TRAIL SECTION WIDTH

Asphalt                                     $37         $55            $73              $92          $110

Concrete                                    $30         $69            $91              $115         $138

Permeable Concrete                          ---         ---            ---              $94          $113

Wood Decking (for boardwalks)               ---         ---            $100             $110         $120


  Example: Park Trail (10’ wide) with ABC sub-surface and Permeable Concrete surface.

               Calculation of cost per linear foot: $42 + $94 = $136

               Resulting cost per linear mile:    $136 X 5,280 feet = $716,760

Maintenance

Maintenance includes repairing and replacing facilities that may become unsafe or unsightly due
to age, exposure to weather, vandalism, etc. Unlike construction, it is difficult to assign a cost per
linear foot. A prudent option is to establish a trail maintenance program that helps to track
information that will assist those responsible for the trails after construction. Such a tool would
list the type of trail, its width, materials used and year constructed. In addition, scheduled
maintenance activities like regular inspections, cleanings and repair history would offer the type
of detailed information that could be converted into actual costs for future operating budget
purposes.

Scheduling

After mapping the trails and greenways, ranking and prioritizing specific projects and securing
financing, the final step is to merge this information into a capital projects schedule that mirrors
the City’s Capital Improvements Program. Table A.4, Trails & Greenways Capital Projects
Schedule, provides a comprehensive 10-year timetable for implementation, based on available
information. Because all of the funds have not been programmed, approximately $1.6 million
may be allocated to trail projects as identified in the prioritization phase.

Care should be taken to maintain flexibility with regard to the capital projects schedule.
Opportunities, by their very nature, cannot always be anticipated; therefore, rigid adherence to
the schedule may not serve the City’s best interests in the long term.
