Greenway, Blueway and Bikeway Master Plan - Meeting March 13

Reposting this straight from the Murfreesboro Bicycle Clubs web page.

Please - we need as many people as possible at this meeting - there's a group out there trying to stop Greenway and Bikeway expansion in Rutherford County - we need your support! Keith and I received harassing emails from a group because we participated in the Rutherford County Comprehensive Plan -and they have their eyes on this Greenway, Blueway and Bikeway Master Plan. I can't be there due to a prior committment -but I hope many of you can stop by and show your support.

-- The city’s Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a public input meeting to guide the creation of its Greenway, Blueway and Bikeway Master Plan.

The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 13 in the dining room at Patterson Park Community Center, 521 Mercury Blvd. The plan will guide the development of these corridors for the next 25 years.
For more information, contact Angela Jackson at 615-890-5333 or ajackson@murfreesborotn.gov.

Rutherford transportation could net $107M for growth

While the Rutherford County list includes traditional road widening and interchange projects, it heavily focuses on alternative transportation, such as adding sidewalks, bicycle paths, bus transit improvements, bus equipment, traffic camera monitoring equipment and expansion of greenways. Installation of 7.1 miles of fiber optic cables, associated closed circuit TV cameras, traffic signal support and related equipment at traffic operations center and various locations along State Route 1/2, S.R. 10, S.R. 96, Middle Tennessee Boulevard, Fortress Boulevard, and Medical Center Parkway in Murfreesboro.

Not sure if this is the same project. Really wonder why anyone would be opposed?
