The Commission issued a letter of support for an application for Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) funding by the City of Memphis; to-wit,

“On behalf of the County of Scotland, we wish to express our support of the grant application by the City of Memphis for Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) funds for a project that will connect various pieces of sidewalk MoDOT has already replaced from recent bridge and road improvements between the City’s downtown square and the recreation and fitness center,” the commission’s letter stated. “This project has warranted outstanding community based support and we believe that the proposed application for TAP funds is vital to provide a safe pedestrian pathway from the City’s recreation and fitness center along Highway 136 and along Market Street north to the downtown square area. Additionally, significant signage and striping for pedestrian safety is needed in order to cross Highway 136 to access the fitness and recreation center. The TAP funds will promote safety and tie everything into one nice corridor from the downtown square to the fitness and recreation center while functionally connecting current pieces of sidewalk that lead to nowhere.”
