Back from Johnson City commission meeting and they voted unanimously in favor of agreeing with the rail road for sale of the property. There is a little tidying up on the sale contract language but for all intents and purposes WE HAVE A TRAIL!!!
It’s a great day. Since the Depot is a trail head for the Tweetsie I’m sure I will be working closely in its development. There is a lot of excitement and energy from the public and harnessing it will be next. The rail road has up to two years to salvage tracks and they’ve agreed to level it and clear all debris before leaving. An engineering design/study is next and we have to come up with a management plan. Lots to do but at least it is happening.
This bears witness to how Bike
’s support of a campaign (even regionally) can have a great effect. Walk TN
