Spring Hill Responds to Resident’s Desire for More Walkable, Connected, Greener Spaces
Based on a survey of over 700 residents, Spring Hill is focusing on making greenways both a recreation and transportation option. Spring Hill is applying for two grants to help connect different neighborhoods to their local schools. The first grant is for a paved multi-use trail to connect Spring Station Drive to the campuses Summit High School and Spring Station Middle School.The second grant would help pay for the McCutcheon Creek paved multi-use greenway trail that would connect several subdivisions along the west side of Main Street to Harvey Park. The city submitted its application in early October with support from the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization.
Gov. Bill Haslam visited Spring Hill earlier this year to deliver an enhancement grant through the Tennessee Department of Transportation, which will link the Tanyard Springs subdivision in the city to sidewalks built in neighboring Thompson’s Station through the federally funded Safe Routes to School program.
These two projects are part of Spring Hill’s larger greenway system that would link it to Thompson’s Station and beyond.
