During their Tuesday afternoon meeting, members of the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen wil consider approving a contract for design services for Phase III of the Greeneville Historic Walkway project.

The meeting begins at 4 p.m. in the G. Thomas Love Boardroom at the Greeneville Light & Power System headquarters.

Aldermen will also review personnel policies and consider an ordinance on first reading to amend travel reimbursement regulations for town officials and employees.

Board members will consider approving purchase of a compact track loader and attachments for the Public Works Department.

On second and final reading, aldermen will consider an ordinance to adopt a new digital zoning map to replace the prior official physical map, made of mylar.

HISTORIC WALKWAY

Phase III of the Historic Walkway is planned to begin at Hardin Park and end at a signalized crosswalk adjacent to Takoma Regional Hospital.

On Tuesday, aldermen will consider authorizing Mayor W.T. Daniels to sign a contract with McGill and Associates for engineering and design services for Phase III.

Grant funding from the Tennessee Department of Transportation requires the town to be ready to begin construction by September 2015, with work completed by 2017.

The first phase of the project, completed in 2008, begins near the Big Spring and travels down College Street, crossing Church and Depot Streets.

The second phase will go along College Street, turn left onto South McKee Street and turn right onto Lake Street. From there, the walkway will turn left onto South Main Street and right on Crescent Street to Hardin Park.

There is no established timeline for completion of the second phase.

Phase III would go through Hardin Park and end at a crosswalk adjacent to Takoma Regional Hospital, providing an easy connection to walking trails being constructed on the hospital's grounds, which are not part of the Historic Walkway.

Initial plans for the Historic Walkway called for four phases, which would include a section that would cross Vann Road to Takoma Regional Hospital, then travel toward Forest Park and go back to the downtown area.

If those plans are realized, it would create a more-than-4-mile loop to provide additional outdoor recreation and exercise opportunities for local citizens.
