The Oak Ridge City Council will hear updates on three projects during a special meeting on Tuesday: the proposed Oak Ridge General Aviation Airport, the planned Oak Ridge Preschool, and the planned Oak Ridge Senior Center.
The special meeting is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Tuesday, February 20, in the Multipurpose Room at the Central Services Complex on Woodbury Lane.
The presentation and status report on the proposed airport is scheduled to be given by aviation consultant Billy Stair and Bill Marrison, president of the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority. Stair and Marrison gave a status report to Roane County officials in December. The Oak Ridge Airport would be built at Heritage Center, the former K-25 site, which is in the Roane County portion of Oak Ridge.
The airport presentation in Oak Ridge was initially scheduled for January, but it was rescheduled to Tuesday because of winter weather last month.
The updates and information on any necessary actions to proceed with construction drawings for the preschool and senior center will be given by Jacene Phillips of Studio Four Design.
During the special meeting, Council could also vote on a contract valued at about $195,000 for concrete repairs at the Oak Ridge Municipal Swimming Pool, the outdoor pool on Providence Road.
Also on the agenda are information on water plant membranes for the Water Treatment Plant and updates on legislative issues.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
