1.) Improvements to and adding additonal boat ramps within Scottsboro at City Park and Goosepond Colony. Water sports and fishing are a large part of our tourism revenue each year within the City, and our efforts to expand and capture this revenue should be enhanced. The City received a grant in the amount of $418,496.81 towards this project and it is currently under construction.
2.) Completing the service road that connects the west side of Hwy 72 and Hwy 35 will make retail development along this service road more attractive. This Project is locally funded and will be completed in July of 2019.
3.) Completed a traffic study and conceptual design for the Hwy 72 / County Park intersection continuing up to Redstone Federal Credit union on Hwy 72. This study and design allows the City to explore a more safe traffic pattern and possibly promote more retail development in this area as well. The City received a Highway Safety Improvement Grant for this project and the design phase has begun with construction anticipated in the late fall or winter of 2019.
4.) Strategically placing community storm shelters within the City limits for all citizens.
5.) Improving all our drainage ways that ultimately flow into Roseberry Creek, and exploring strategic dredging of Roseberry Creek with TVA.
6.) Removing the old wasterwater treatment plant on Heros Drive, and converting this area into green space for recreational use.
