I recently attended a community meeting in Oak Hill about about the recent effort to protect a 660-acre property that could become a great asset as a community park. The Foothills Conservancy has identified this property in the Oak Hill Community and has been working for several months to preserve this as a 'forever' green space for local residents and people visiting Burke county.

Foothills Conservancy needs support from local community members as well as government representatives to raise funds for this project. The Conservancy has been successful in negotiating a purchase option on the property while working to raise $3 million to acquire the property for the community.

Please join me in supporting the Oak Hill Community Park and Forest effort! As a citizen interested in supporting Burke County and this particular project, I am doing what I can. I urge you, in whatever capacity you have, to help support this project as well.
