Haw Ridge Park development

As of November, 1998, there doesn't appear to be much threat to Haw Ridge Park for the time being -- no support from the city population and no money ....

WARNING On June 1, 1998 the Oak Ridge City Council gave approval for the City to distribute requests for proposals in developing Haw Ridge Park as a "destination attraction." The City hopes to have a conceptual design for public review by October. Here is the City's RFP for developing Haw Ridge Park.
