City hosts first public meeting on Lake Nicol, Harris upgrades

Tuscaloosa is partnering with a local engineering firm and making a new master plan for improvements at Lake Nicol and Harris Lake, but they want residents’ feedback, too.

On Monday, city leaders and TTL USA representatives were at the Phelps Activity Center taking guidance from anyone interested in stopping by and checking out the plans.

TTL Executive Vice President Jason Walker said the master plan is part of Elevate Tuscaloosa, which is a roadmap of improvements for the area.

“We’re excited to get actual community input,” Walker said. “It’s the first public part of the initiative. There’s been a lot of groundwork with mapping and surveys and things to see what we’re working with from a site standpoint.”

But the community will be instrumental in deciding which direction these areas go.

“This is an opportunity to develop a plan that will engage the community at all levels,” said Walker.

There’s still a little time to fill out the Tuscaloosa survey regarding what you’d like to see at the lakes. You can check that out right here.
