Bank donates land for trail

Things are starting to come together in a big way for a downtown trails project, and a local business is part of the reason.

At a groundbreaking ceremony for the first phase of the Greenway Trails Project Tuesday, officials from Citizens Union Bank announced a donation of 21 acres of land to be used for the second phase.

“Most of our customers grew up in this parks system,” said David Bowling, CEO for CUB.

“We are a big part of this community.”
