With less than 24 hours notice, we have just received the message below from the Friends of Rocky Fork State Park about a meeting to be held tomorrow night, January 10, at the Flag Pond School, 917 Old Asheville Hwy, Flag Pond, TN.
“Hello Friend’s Members,
Tennessee State Parks will be conducting a public hearing tomorrow, Jan. 10th, at Flag Pond School at 6:00 p.m.
This meeting is regarding proposed application for Brownfield clean-up funds from the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
Tennessee State Parks will receive public comments concerning the proposed action described below:
Facility Location: Morrill Electric Building – 281 Jennie Moore Road, Flag Pond, TN 37657
Description: Tennessee State Parks proposes to pursue funding through the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfield Clean-up Grant to facilitate the clean-up of the Morrill Electric Building site for redevelopment into an equestrian trailhead for Rocky Fork State Park. The purpose of the hearing is to obtain views on parks needs, review proposed activities and solicit public comments. The meeting is open to the public and all citizens are encouraged to attend and make their views known.
Hope you are able to attend.
There have been discussions about this site being acquired and used for various purposes, and some feel it would make a better home for the new state park’s visitor center. Even though this is very late notice, we hope that some of you can attend the meeting.
