Lake Rabon trails on agenda
The board of directors of the Laurens County Water & Sewer Commission will follow up Tuesday morning on a forum held Feb. 15 about trails and enhancements at Lake Rabon
The Lake Rabon Trails Phase III project is a new business discussion item for the board's regular monthly meeting Feb. 23 at 8:15 am in the commission's office on Hwy 221 S, Laurens. The meeting is open to the public. Agenda items also include the monthly chairman's remarks, executive director's remarks, financial summary and the operations summary.
Board members also will hear about the commission and its employees' community outreach programs. Two items will be discussed in a closed-to-the-public executive session - any vote on matters discussed must be taken in open session, per the SC Freedom of Information Act. The closed session items, the agenda says, are "1. follow-up discussion of negotiations related to a proposed contractual agreement associated with the withdrawal of water from Lake Greenwood; 2. discussion of negotiations related to purchase of property and matters related to legal advice or attorney client privilege."

LCWSC owns and operates a public park on Lake Rabon. The park includes trails, a boat ramp, fishing dock, picnic shelters, playground equipment and restroom facilities. Most of these facilities, including some paved trails, are accessible to handicapped individuals. In partnership with the SC Department of Parks and Recreation and the Recreational Trails Program, LCWSC plans to improve the trails system with the addition of 2800 feet of new unpaved trail and upgrading 2170 feet of existing trail with asphalt paving. We will also pave the upper trailhead parking area and provide additional benches, picnic tables and trash receptacles. These improvements will enhance the existing trail facilities and encourage repeat visitors and an influx of new visitors of all ages. Like the existing facilities, the new trail will be sustainable well into the future, and will be maintained by existing LCWSC personnel. The goal of LCWSC’s 2016 RTP Project is to increase public access to and awareness of the natural treasures that South Carolina and Laurens County have to offer.
