This ordinance authorizes the acquisition of easements for properties located along Murfreesboro Pike from the I-24 exit ramps to Foothills Drive. These easements are needed for the construction of a sidewalk project. The estimated cost for the right-of-way easements is $450,000, 80% of which ($360,000) will be paid by the federal government and 20% ($90,000) by Metro. Upon acquisition, the easements will be transferred to the State of Tennessee.
