TSPLOST Project #5 - Oconee Rivers Greenway Project Statement
This project will provide for capital improvements of greenway corridors and connectors along the Oconee Rivers following the Mayor and Commission approved Greenway Network Plan, as may be amended from time to time. Projects include the completion of the Mayor and Commission previously approved SPLOST 2011 sub-projects that require additional funding for completion. The balance of the funding would be put towards funding the high priority projects in the approved 2016 Greenway Network Plan and/or used to match funding for state and/or federal grants to allow additional Greenway Projects to be completed.
