Tiger Trail Team Pitches Idea for Transition to City Park

A joint effort by community health enthusiasts and the Scotland County R-I School District could gain a third partner. Dr. Jeff Davis, board member for the Tiger Trail Team, met with the Memphis City Council April 9th to broach the idea of the community walking trail eventually becoming part of the citys park system.

Currently the recreational area is on property owned by the SCR-I School District, which in conjunction with community volunteers, perform maintenance and upkeep for the roughly 10-acre lot.

Davis noted that the trail board ultimately would like to make significant upgrades to the walking area, including hard surface trails and lighting.

He indicated grant funds are available for such projects, adding that he felt the likelihood to receive state and federal funding would improve if the facility was a public park.

Davis also noted that maintenance would be more readily available for the trails if they were a city park, allowing the walking area to be added to the citys existing mowing schedule while also making available the various departments expertise with construction and upkeep of hard surfaces and lighting.

Many of the board members have been at this since the trail first got started, so they would hate to see it go by the wayside without making some type of effort to preserve and improve the park, Davis said.

He indicated board members planned to meet with the school board to discuss options for the property.

The Tiger Trail team committee meets the first Wednesday of every month at the County Health Department at 6:00 p.m.
