City votes to buy property for Town Creek Project

2014-06-03 - Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo CM staff photo.
Following a brief executive session last night Columbia City Council voted to proceed with the purchase of a small plot of ground necessary for the Kentucky Highway Department's Town Creek flood prevention, safety, and beautification project. The diversion of Town Creek will go through the property, which is the triangle defined generally by the taller grass between the present Town Creek Bridge and the Parson House. The Columbia Cemetery Board is proceeding with a process under an eminent domain statute to obtain the Parson House and raze it. While the Town Creek Project would be easier if the Parson House were removed, removal is not essential for the stream realignment project. Work on the project was initiated in December after State Senator Sara Beth Gregory was shown the need in December 2013.
