Mayor May / Alderman Layne, I have the general statement for your review to be used as a update on the current OHV Project upon approval by either one of you.  Please reply all upon approval so that TOHVA and Southern Four Wheel Drive may update their persons of interest and celebrate the latest accomplishments.

"The Town of Coalmont and the Southern Four Wheel Drive Association presented the Coalmont OHV Park Project to the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation (TDEC), Recreation and Education Services Program on Wednesday of this week.  The presentation request came from the grant application submitted by the Town of Coalmont and Southern Four Wheel Drive in the Spring of 2011.  Coalmont & Southern Four Wheel Drive feel good about the opportunity to initiate park development with grant funds from TDEC in the near future. TDEC & Coalmont will be completing final grant contract work in the coming months and working through specific project details.  The grant funds will be focused on land acquisition and construction for the Trail Head and Day Use Area only. Trail access agreements for the proposed trail system are also in the development stages and will be undertaken in 2013 and 2014.  The first two phases of the four phase project are expected to be completed by the end of 2014."
