Final Master Plan Now Available

Feasibility Study Complete
The Regional Greenway Council hired SRW & Associates to help study the feasibility of raising funds to build the greenway from Maryville to Townsend. The availability of state and federal funding may be limited, so the potential for raising private funds is being explored. You can find the Executive Summary of the Feasibility Study here, and there's a powerpoint on the Feasibility Study here.
