Overton-Broad Connector Meeting

Posted By on Tue, Aug 14, 2012 at 12:32 PM

Two public meetings to gather input on what cyclists, pedestrians, and other stakeholders would like to see in the proposed bike path connecting Overton Park to the Shelby Farms Greenline via Broad and Tillman are scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 16th.

A day time "open house" drop-in meeting is set for 2:30 p.m. at the Lester Street Community Center (317 Tillman), and a formal presentation is scheduled for 6 p.m. at First Baptist Church Broad (2835 Broad).

The Overton-Broad connector project, currently being spearheaded by Livable Memphis, will include paved trails through Overton Park connecting to Sam Cooper and a two-lane bike path leading down Broad and Tillman to the Shelby Farms Greenline. See this story from the Flyer for more information.
