Polk County and Cedar­town will both be host­ing meet­ings in July to dis­cuss the re­sults of a fea­si­bil­ity study into whether a trail be­tween down­town Cave Spring and down­town Cedar­town will be built to connect Floyd County to the Sil­ver Comet Trail.

Alta Plan­ning and De­sign will be in Cedar­town to present re­sults of their study on whether the trail can be built to Cedar­town City Com­mis­sion­ers in a meet­ing on July 6 at 6 p.m. in the com­mis­sion meet­ing room at Cedar­town City Hall.

The de­sign firm will then present find­ings to the Polk County Com­mis­sion dur­ing their work ses­sion on Mon­day, July 13 at 5:15 p.m.

The con­nec­tion would bring users of the trail from the De­pot on Main Street through the heart of Cedar­town, and then on­ward to Cave Spring. Com­mis­sion chair Dale Tuck said the benefits of the ad­di­tional trail would serve to in­crease use and in­ter­est in the trail sys­tem.

“Peo­ple in Rome and Floyd County and even in Chat­tanooga are pay­ing close at­ten­tion to the re­sults of the study,” she said. “They are very ex­cited about the pos­si­bil­ity of the trail con­tin­u­ing north. This con­nec­tion will be a very good thing for the city.”
