Dear SORBA Chattanooga members, mountain bikers, and friends of the outdoors,
Since 2016, the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy has been working to create a unique 200+ acre park that spans from Mountain Creek Road and Reads Lake Road all the way up the W-Road. Through partnerships with the Land Trust for Tennessee, the Access Fund, the Southeastern Climbing Coalition, & SORBA Chattanooga we acquired property and began enlisting renowned trail builders to develop a trail plan that will offer unique climbing, mountain biking, and hiking opportunities just a short distance from downtown Chattanooga. We have applied for and received several grants that will help us build out trails to the unique natural features, and we have initiated plans to maintain these features once the park is open and in use.
Now you have your opportunity to pitch in on this project. On June 13th, the County Commission will consider a resolution that would authorize the County Mayor to accept the conveyance of the property from the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy. The Council will vote on the measure on June 20th. We need you to contact your County Commissioner and urge her or him to vote in favor of this resolution.
SORBA has worked hard with our partners to create this opportunity; now is the time for you to tell the Commission that you want this park to become a reality.
Thank you for your support,
Kevin J. Smith

What to Say?
I am writing to urge you to vote in favor of the resolution that will allow the County Mayor to accept the eventual conveyance of a tract of real property from the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy. This “tract of real property” will be a completed park with climbing, mountain biking, and hiking opportunities, and this represents a wonderful gift to the community. Please help the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy and their partner organizations continue their good work by assuring them of the County’s commitment to accept the park.
