|Wadesboro Seeking Public Input on Pedestrian Plan|
After receiving a grant to develop a comprehensive pedestrian plan, the Town of Wadesboro is seeking public input. Citizens are encouraged to give their feedback through a survey on www.walkwadesboro.org/. The survey link is located about halfway down the webpage and highlighted in yellow. Paper copies of the survey are available at City Hall.
The Town of Wadesboro’s vision is to develop a comprehensive and connected pedestrian network that provides safe access to homes, schools, workplaces, parks and recreational destinations as part of an
active and walkable community. The Town envisions children walkingsafely to school, seniors walking safely to nearby destinations, citizens moving safely in high traffic areas, and tourists moving about the community and Uptown areas easily on foot.
Such a comprehensive and connected pedestrian network will enhance the health of Wadesboro‘s citizenry while also encouraging economic vitality through walkable commercial districts and neighborhoods.
|Wadesboro Trash Pickup Changes
After 6 months of discussion and public input, the Town of Wadesboro is reducing curbside trash pickup service to once-per-week.
Just like many in our community, the Town is faced with significant financial challenges. As a result, the Town must make tough decisions to responsibly manage public monies and to ensure quality public services are sustainable for the long-term.
The new service schedule will begin Monday, June 30, 2014. Customers who currently receive trash service Monday and Thursday will now have trash service only on Monday. In comparison, customers who currently receive trash service Tuesday and Friday will now have trash service only on Wednesday. Uptown customers who received trash service
every day will now have trash service only on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The new guidelines are designed for efficient pickup with minimum disruptions to the customer. Customers now have two options. First, customers can place out bagged trash in up to 4 containers totaling 128 gallons. Alternatively, customers can place out up to 4 trash bags without any container. Under both options, up to 10 pieces of empty cardboard outside any container or bags will be picked up. Non-residential furniture pick-up is limited to 2 items per week. The trash fee will remain unchanged at $15 per month. All other sanitation services remain unchanged.

Uptown Beautification - Fire Hydrant Adoption Program
The Wadesboro Fire Department is starting a Fire Hydrant adoption program for the hydrants in the Uptown area. The purpose is to help beautify our Uptown. Special thanks to the Anson New Tech students who came up with this idea.
This program would involve an organization or a citizen picking a hydrant(s) to adopt, they would then present their proposal for painting or decorating hydrant to the Fire Chief or his designee. The possible designs should be in good taste and family friendly. The only cost to adopt a hydrant would be the paint used to decorate it. The adoption period would be a minimum of 1 year, longer if they desire.
The rules would include:
- Do not obstruct the three foot (3’) clearance around the hydrant to insure access during emergencies.
- Nothing can be attached to the hydrant.
- The paint used to decorate the hydrant must be high quality, high gloss exterior enamel.
- Hydrant attire must be in good taste and family friendly, no advertisement.
- The Fire Chief or his designee must approve all designs before painting.
- Any touch up or repainting shall be done by the adopter during the adoption period.
- Further rules can be added as the Fire Chief or his designee deems it needed.
Adoption forms will be available at City Hall and the Fire Station. To download a printable form, click here.
