As Cherokee County is certified to administer federally funded projects and Woodstock is not, the city needs the county’s participation so it can pursue $96,000 in federal transportation funds. The city would reimburse the county for its expenses including a 20 percent local match, estimated at $24,000, of preliminary engineering costs.
So far, Woodstock has completed about 1.5 miles of the Noonday Creek Trail from Market Street downtown south to Ga. 92. Plans call for the path to be extended south for two miles to Shallowford Road and Noonday Park. Cobb is to extend its portion of the path north to link up with Woodstock’s.
