  • Passage of the Connect NC Bond on March 15th is crucial to our two State Parks. Hanging Rock will get funds necessary to repair and renovate Vade Mecum so that it can be opened to the public. Pilot Mountain will see a much overdue Visitor Center funded along with parking and transportation improvements. Used to be that the park overfilled on peak Autumn weekends. Now even in the Winter, traffic backs up waiting for a parking space to open at the Summit. ... Please vote for the bonds on March 15th. And encourage your friends and family to do the same.
