"Although Sanford has an enviable downtown, he says, more needs to be done to link up the distinct areas of the city, including the historic African American neighborhood of Goldsboro. 'We haven’t really done a very good job of making Goldsboro part of the city, so to speak,' he says."
"Some of the other proposals for the city include welcome signs and a system of hiking and cycling trails through Sanford and around Lake Monroe."
"Triplett says he wants to make sure the trail system connects to the SunRail commuter train station. 'Some people say we’re disadvantaged because of the placement of our SunRail [but] we’re kind of blessed in a way because we’ve got a blank slate out there.'”
