Read the updated WaysSouth Strategic Plan here.

To the Supporters of WaysSouth:

Our sincere thanks to you the supporters of WaysSouth for your generous donations of personal energy and dollars over the past year. The work of WaysSouth has been able to continue because of your continued interest and involvement.  Together, we stopped I-3!

WaysSouth is now in a time of transition.  Our major projects are Corridor K in North Carolina and Tennessee.  WaysSouth is active in Corridor K public participation and engineering study issues.  At the same time we are committed to monitor and provide citizen leadership on other transportation issues on Federal, State, and Local levels that impact our Southern Appalachian Region. To focus our efforts beginning in 2012, the Board of WaysSouth prepared a new Strategic Plan. Our Strategic Plan is provided to you with this letter so that our supporters will clearly understanding the mission, objectives and priorities of WaysSouth as we move forward.

We will continue to need the support of our volunteers and our contributors in order to work toward the goals described in the Strategic Plan. Volunteers are especially needed who have experience or expertise in highway engineering, grant writing and grass roots organizing in the Carolinas and Tennessee. We also need volunteers to help monitor local and state transportation initiatives and to help communicate with legislators and regulators. If you can provide even a small amount of volunteer time and energy, please contact Melanie Mayes at mamayes5@yahoo.com.

In these tight financial times we continue to operate frugally and are committed to working efficiently and effectively with the monies donated to WaysSouth. We hope you will consider making a donation to help us capitalize on the successes of Stopping I-3 to ensure Corridor K in North Carolina and Tennessee is environmentally friendly, economically feasible, and timely. To make a contribution please go to www.wayssouth.org and donate on Pay Pal or you may send your check directly to WaysSouth,1074 Arbor Drive, Lakemont, GA 30552.

Thank you once again and best wishes for the future.


Melanie Mayes, Chair
