Johnson City Commission Votes to Accept Contract For Tweetsie Trail

Thursday night, April 21, 2011 the Johnson City Commissioners voted unanimously to accept the sales contract for the Tweetsie Trail property. After many long years of negociation and public advocacy we now have a Rails to Trail project, the first in East Tennessee. Elizabethton and Carter County officials have agreed to cooperate with Johnson City in the construction of the hiking and biking trail. Grant funds are already being considered from the state and volunteers from hiking, biking, and other trail user groups will be asked to participate in the project.
