Did the Trasks back out of letting the Cross-City Trail go through Autumn Hall?

The plan remains for the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail to travel from the bridge over the Bradley Creek Floodway through the Autumn Hall property to the existing section along Eastwood Road, said Amy Beatty, superintendent for recreation and downtown services in the city of Wilmington’s Community Services Department.

“The City and the property owner are currently working together to prepare the easement.” Beatty said.

The Trask family remains involved in the process, added Blake Frazier, a broker with Sea Coast Realty, which works with the family.

“(The question) is not an accurate statement. They have not backed out,” Frazier said.

The developers of Autumn Hall originally planned to build a trail that connected with the city’s Cross-City Trail. The project has slowed in the slack economy and developers said in June they don’t know when that would happen.

Raiford Trask, vice president of Autumn Hall Inc. whose family owns the land, said in June 2011 it would take a minimum of 10 years for the company to get a trail built. The developer had planned to sell easement rights to the city for $170,000 so the public could use the trail.
