Bulloch County, in partnership with the Town of Brooklet, is seeking public input on a proposed 3.1 mile extension of the S&S Greenway from the Five Points roundabout intersection linking into the Town of Brooklet to Brooklet Elementary School. Bulloch County and the Town of Brooklet plan to jointly submit a competitive grant application in excess of $1 million to aid in completing this project, with a third of the funds being supported by the recently approved 1% Transportation Local Option Sales Tax. This project is eligible for federal grant funding from the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act’s Transportation Alternatives Program, which is passed through the Georgia Department of Transportation.
Bulloch County has also produced a survey and comment instrument that will be available for interested parties at the public information meetings (Click here to take survey), and also online using the following sources:
- Bulloch County Board of Commissioners Facebook page
- Statesboro-Bulloch Parks and Recreation at www.bullochrec.com/greenway
Key scoring criteria for the grant includes public support. Thanks to the popularity of the existing completed phases of the S&S Greenway, Bulloch County and the Town of Brooklet urge citizens to attend these meetings or provide online input to help show public support.
