Members of the community are being asked to share ideas on how to make Coffee County more accessible at a community mobility planning meeting on Tuesday night.

According to Planning and Codes Director Lee Lawson, the city will hold the meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. at D.W. Wilson Community Center on Tuesday, May 14. Residents are invited to stop by and share their ideas for how best to connect the whole of Coffee County in a way that serves everyone, Lawson said.

The two cities in the county are currently in the process of working with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) on how to improve all transportation corridors of the county for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles alike.

The meeting will have an informal come-and-go style, with small workshop tables set up for people to share their ideas, according to Lawson.

TDOT is focused on the five key “corridors” of the county, which mostly fall on county highways or state routes. They include State Route 55 between Manchester and Tullahoma; Hillsboro Boulevard/Murfreesboro Highway (US-41) in Manchester; the Old Manchester/Tullahoma highway; Jackson Street (US-41A) in Tullahoma and Wilson Avenue (State Route 55) in Tullahoma.

Tullahoma citizens are encouraged to come to the D.W. Wilson meeting on Tuesday night, but for those who can’t make it, there is another meeting in Manchester set for 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 16 inside the Manchester City Hall building, located at 200 W Fort St.

There will also be an online component for those who can’t make either physical meeting, according to Lawson.

The D.W. Wilson Community Center is located at 501 N Collins St.

For more information on the meetings or the online components, contact Lawson at 931-455-2282.
