The Oak Ridge City Council will discuss a part of the Rails to Trails program, which could convert a former railway in central Oak Ridge into a bicycle and pedestrian greenway, and the current status of the city’s school resource officer program on Tuesday.
The discussion of the design and acquisition process for the CSX Railroad railway, which is no longer being used, will be led by Jon Hetrick, Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks director, and representatives from Morton, Thomas, and Associates of Kingsport, Tennessee.
The discussion of the current status of the city’s school resource officer program will be led by Oak Ridge Police Chief James Akagi.
Also on the agenda are a review of budget calendar and goals, which will be led by City Manager Mark Watson, and an update of activities of the Environmental Quality Advisory Board, which will be led by EQAB Chair Robert Kennedy and EQAB member Rebecca Bowman.
The Tuesday meeting is a non-voting work session. It’s scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, in the Multi-Purpose Room at the Central Services Complex on Woodbury Lane, behind the Hobby Lobby shopping center. You can see the agenda here.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
