CROSSVILLE CITY COUNCIL DISCUSS NWF HABITAT PROGRAM, MASTER RECREATION PLAN AND GARRISON PARK

The Crossville City Council looked at several agenda items at a work session Tuesday. Members heard from a Tennessee Wildlife Resources representative about the city applying for a National Wildlife Federation Habitat Program. The program, which has been suggested by The Tree Board, would certify the city as a Habitat Community involving the establishment of wildlife habitats for education and outreach. The council heard from representatives wanting to establish a Master Recreation Planning group. The group would be made up of diversified citizens that would work to promote and recruit athletic events, particularly involving youth, to come to the area. City Manager Greg Wood was tasked to meet with Cumberland County Officials on the subject to see if the county would be interested in pairing with the city on the venture. Finally, Wood asked the council for permission to use $20,000 to finish with the demolition of the grandstand at Garrison Park. The council also agreed to sell off some of the steel salvaged in the project as surplus. Wood also said that many of the bricks used in the building of the facility would be saved to make a memorial wall for the park and that many residents of the community have asked for a brick as a keepsake of the former facility.
