The paths are getting longer in Clayton County, with the green signal on extending the River’s Edge Greenway Trail, according to official sources. The Phase 3 and Phase 4 extensions of the trail will add around two miles, connecting the community even further. As the Phase 2 leg reaches completion, running across Plantation Pkwy and over Harbour Town Pkwy to the Harbour Lake Dr. cul-de-sac, plans for the subsequent phases are unfurling.

Parallel to Fairway Overlook extending, Phase 3 will start at the Harbour Lake Dr. cul-de-sac, while Phase 4 will encircle the lake nestled between Gleneagles Dr. and Gleneagles Way. The endpoint of Phase 4 is set at the club house located on Plantation Pkwy. Prime Engineering comes into play here, behind the scenes crafting the designs for what promises to be a boon for the area's Quality of Life: Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) project.

With an aim to bolster county-wide improvements, the project solicitation window remains open until April 30, as per the Clayton County announcement. The county emphasizes the impact of SPLOST, which has been directing funds from a one-cent sales tax to crucial capital improvements across infrastructure and public safety since 2004.
