BELVILLE, NC (WECT) - Belville town commissioners gave the public an update on the town's Riverwalk Park project at a special meeting Thursday evening. 

Joe Breault, a town commissioner, said the town is years ahead in terms of its goals for the project.

He said the town is currently in the process of applying for a grant that would acquire state money for the project.  He hopes construction on the Riverwalk Park will begin in June.

"People in this town are getting excited," said Breault.  "For a change they can look at Belville and be proud of their town.  They no longer say "I'm from Leland".  They're starting to say, "I'm from Belville"," explained Breault.

Breault said that representatives from state and federal agencies have told him they are happy with the project's progress.
