Cherokee Commissioners To Consider Trail Bid

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners will consider awarding a bid to build part of Woodstock's multi-use trail network with parks bond revenue.

A new multi-use trail system could soon be on the way for Woodstock. 

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners will consider awarding a bid to Georgia Development Partners, LLC of Atlanta to build the trails in the city during its meeting today.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m., following the 3 p.m. work session. Both meetings will be held at the county administrative building.

The cost of the project is $999,939.29 and the funding would be taken out of Woodstock's $5 million portion of the $90 million parks bond county voters approved in 2008. The Downtown Spur trail will run south from the new Market Street at its intersection with Elm Street toward Highway 92 at Noonday Creek. 

The trail will run west of Main Street and alongside the creek. 

If approved, construction would start some time in January and the project could be completed by fall 2013. 

The commission will also consider naming the Cherokee County Justice Center after retiring Chief Superior Court Judge Frank C. Mills, review its 2013 retreat agenda and consider authorizing the Cherokee County Tax Commissioners office to accept personal, company, certified, treasurers and cashier’s checks, bank, postal and express money orders, debit and credit cards as forms of payment for tax and tag fees.
