City discussing new walking trail
Placeholder Image
McMinnville officials are considering connecting Sallys Alley to Rocket Park by means of a new walking trail beside the Barren Fork River. Negotiations are under way between property owners and the city.“A meeting was scheduled with property owners to discuss access to property for use as a greenway or a hiking trail,” said Mayor Jimmy Haley to Parks and Recreation Committee members. Haley says the heirs of Paul Barnes, those being Barry Barnes and Paul Michael Barnes, seem amenable to the idea with some concessions by the city.“They would like naming rights to that section of the greenway area,” Haley said.
