In response to tremendous public pressure, the Wake County Commissioners cancelled their January 6th plans to sell off the former Crooked Creek golf course property that they purchased in September 2018. They did an incredible about-face, and on March 18th, voted to donate the land to Fuquay Varina for the town to use as a new park. Thank you to everyone who showed up to protest that proposed sale in January. Your voices and presence along with thousands of e-mails and social media posts helped the county commissioners make the right decision in not selling off this wonderful park land. The following evening, the Fuquay Varina Town Board enthusiastically accepted this land and each board member spoke about what a great opportunity this is for the town, and they thanked all of the citizens who helped make this happen.
Thanks to all the supporters who came out to the Winging It fundraising event in Fuquay Varina, including Mayor John Byrne and Mayor ProTemp Blake Massengil who spent time talking to park supporters about the town possible plans for the property.
