Press Release: Singing River Trail
Decatur to Shoals Master Plan Visioning Workshops

Launch 2035 and the Singing River Trail have begun the process of developing a trail master plan that will connect Decatur to the Florence/Muscle Shoals region, building on the original master plan that connected Huntsville to Athens and Decatur. Local residents are invited to come learn about the health and economic benefits of trails and contribute their input into the vision for the Singing River Trail route. Public involvement and stakeholder input will set a foundation for the development of the master plan and we want to hear from you!

The community is invited to participate in drop-in, interactive workshops that will identify a vision and opportunities for the development of the Singing River Trail. Come share your thoughts with the project team: What kind of greenway trails would you like to see? What destinations should be connected? What other ideas do you have?

For the public's convenience, there are two locations on two dates in Decatur and Florence (June 14th and June 15th).

Tuesday, June 14th, 4-7pm at Cross-Eyed Owl Brewing Company (105 1st Ave NE, Decatur, AL 35601)

Voter Information YOU Need to Know About
as a Citizen of Colbert County

Periodically, the Secretary of State mandates that each Alabama County Board of Registrars compile a list of voters to be purged from the voter rosters due to; one, death of the registered voter, two, that voter relocating their residence beyond the County or political boundary in which they were last registered to vote or lastly, due to voter inactivity of the previous four years.

The "purge list" for Colbert County can be viewed or downloaded here. This is the current list of Colbert County voters which are scheduled to be removed in the near future.

Please review this list and if your name is among those listed and should not be or if you find other discrepencies with the list, contact the Colbert County Board of Registrars and find out what you need to do to ensure that you will be able to vote.

There is a very important election next year, which is when we will vote for a U.S. Senator, our State offices including Governor; Secretary of State; Attorney General and others, including our legislators. We will also elect our District Judge; Sheriff, and District Attorney.

Every citizen has the right and the responsibility to choose the best person to represent us. Please participate in the process of selecting our political leaders!

There's no business like Shoals business!

Business hasn't stopped and the Shoals Chamber hasn't either. However, in order to show extra caution for our staff, members, and visitors, we are not accepting walk-ins at this time. Please know that your Chamber is still working for you, and you can reach out to us via email, phone, and social media. Let us know how we can help!
