The Lakeland Economic Development Commission (EDC) is emphasing the importance of attending the upcoming Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) Public Hearing on the Canada Road/I-40 Interchange. The date of the Public Hearing is expected to be announced shortly.
An informational brochure and galvanizing public attendance at the Public Hearing is a top priority. Following the Public Hearing, the emphasis will be on demonstrating continued public support to State Officials. The brochure will include information on the need for the interchange and the differences between the “single-point interchange” and the enhanced “diamond” interchange.
The EDC held the Special Meeting to set priorities and decided that the logical priority is the completion of the interchange, with the immediate emphasis on the Public Hearing and follow-up support.
The Economic Development Commission members are appointed by the Lakeland Board of Commissioners.
