Scenic Roots Special: A Forever Moccasin Bend Conversation
On this special edition of "Scenic Roots," we bring you "A Forever Moccasin Bend Conversation" - with former Congressman Zach Wamp, Mickey Robbins, Sally Robinson and Tricia Mims of National Park Partners.
Here in Chattanooga, "Forever Moccasin Bend" is the fundraising effort led byNational Park Partners - starting with "Opening the Gateway" - that will add park and new visitor amenities at the District's Gateway Site.
Former Congressman Zach Wamp led the eight-year effort in Washington to create the District back in 2003.
Another person who knows well the history of Moccasin Bend - and has helped to shape what it is today - is Mickey Robbins, now on the board of National Park Partners.
And for decades, Sally Robinson has played a key role in revitalizing Chattanooga’s downtown and riverfront development - including three terms on the City Council and the long road to Moccasin Bend today.
They joined me for a conversation - along with Tricia Mims, executive director of National Park Partners.
