Doty votes against grant for G.A.T.E.

Worries about city being able to meet funding requirements

GLASGOW — A city councilman who was a member of the steering committee that created the plan for a network of pedestrian and cycling trails in and around Glasgow voted against allowing the city to apply for a grant to help kick-start it.

In a 10-1 vote, Glasgow City Council resolved to allow the city’s grant writer to submit an application for $776,815 in federal Transportation Alternatives Program funds.

The grant would be used to build the South Fork Creek Path of the Glasgow Alternative Transportation Endeavor Plan and sidewalks for the Humble Avenue and Carnation Drive neighborhoods. The G.A.T.E. Plan has been incorporated into the Joint City-County Planning Commission for Barren County’s Comprehensive Plan that provides the big picture for development over the next decades.
