An agreement with the N.C. Department of Transportation could provide needed repairs to streets in Mint Hill’s Ashe Plantation subdivision.
For years the subdivision’s streets have been partly maintained by the N.C. Department of Transportation and partly maintained by the Town of Mint Hill. And a portion of Hanging Moss Trail isn’t the responsibility of either agency.
To bring an end to the confusion and provide maintenance for Hanging Moss, the town has offered to pay $116,912.50 to bring Hanging Moss up to town standards if the state department will bring its section of the subdivision up to town standards. Once the work is complete, the town would take over maintenance of the entire subdivision. The estimated cost to the state is $329,002.50.
Mint Hill commissioners voted Thursday, Feb. 23 to authorize the town manager to negotiate the agreement.
