Some good news for Cheval residents.  Walkers and runners soon will have an easier time getting around downtown Mint Hill, thanks to new sidewalk projects underway.  The sidewalks will flow into the popular town from both parks and will especially help keep students safe walking to Independence High School.  Mint Hill Town Manager Brian Welch says the sidewalks will not necessarily follow a straight line.  They plan to go around mailboxes, existing trees, and what ever else  is in their way.  In the mean time, watch out for those students making their way to and from school!  And THANKS to Mint Hill for this project!
