"Our grant for the design and development of the Cahaba River Blueway made sense not only because it encourages responsible use of one of our region's ecological gems, the Cahaba River, but it also engages communities all along the river in the planning," said Gus Heard-Hughes, Director of Initiatives for the Community Foundation."Today's announcement reinforces that the Blueway project is fostering cooperation and collaboration, and we applaud all the partners, including the cities of Irondale and Leeds, for coming together to make this additional access point a reality."
