A fundraising effort has begun online for a project to provide more access to the Shelby Farms Greenline.

A Facebook page for the Perkins Project has been established and shows plans for a connector to the Greenline close to corner of Perkins and Princeton.

“This access point to the Greenline will connect 1,000 households to (Shelby Farms Park),” the page reads. “There is a 2.5 mile stretch along the Greenline that lacks an official access point to the trail.”

The Perkins Project is one of the first proposals out of the gate from the recently completed Mid-South Regional Greenprint Plan.

The connector project is one of three projects from a plan called Greenline A.C.C.E.S.S. (Adjacent Community Connections to Enhance Shelby Farms Greenlines and Shelby Farms Park).

The two other project would make connections to the Greenline at the corner of Appling and Mullins Station and on Fischer Steel Road close to the GameDay Baseball complex.
