The Floyd County Board of Commissioners took action tonight in partnership with the City of Rome and the Berry Family to complete the Mt. Berry Trail to the Armuchee Connector. This partnership will provide trail enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy a continuous route from Downtown Rome through the Mt. Berry Trail.
The partnership includes two (2) twenty-foot permanent trail easements across Berry family property and a temporary construction easement on Berry family property to connect to the Armuchee Connector. In return, the Berry family receives land deemed to be in the flood plain from Floyd County.
“This is another great example of public and private interests working together for the betterment of Rome and Floyd County. Through our previous two SPLOSTS, our local citizens have continued to support trail work and this partnership gives us the access we need to complete this loop,” said Floyd County Board of Commissioners Chair, Wright Bagby.
