FORT PAYNE, Ala. — The Fort Payne City Council held a special work session to prioritize upcoming projects within the City.

Councilmember Wade Hill addressed the Council with a list of fifteen projects that they will begin working on. Hill stated that the renovation of the Police Headquarters had been allotted $1 million and was the top priority for the City.

The list of projects include:

  • The Police Headquarters
  • Rainey Corner (the former location of the Mapco Building)
  • Soccer fields
  • Tennis courts
  • Wills Valley Recreation Center
  • Fort Payne Complex renovations
  • Forest Avenue building
  • Coal & Iron Building
  • Downtown projects
  • Fountains
  • AL-35
  • DOE
  • Greenway
  • Railroads
  • Sewers

The Council was updated on a meeting with Norfolk Southern Railway regarding an overpass at the north end of town. The railroad advised at the meeting that railroad traffic would only get worse and suggested an overpass to be built beginning at Twin City and coming back in at Bryant’s Heating and Cooling.

The Council was advised that there are federal grants available for such projects. The Council feels like a solution to the railroad traffic issues are in the future.

The next meeting of the Fort Payne City Council will be held on Tuesday, June 19.
