With renovation and construction of Miller Park underway, First Tennessee is one of the private funders to ensure that the project moves forward. Chattanooga Market President Jeff Jackson presented a check from the bank for $125,000 to aid in project funding.
“The former park was a place that was less than welcoming to families and workers looking for a place to enjoy lunch or live performances," said Mr. Jackson. "It’s our hope that the new design will become Chattanooga’s ‘living room’ with activities and infrastructure that encourage enjoyment of the area by all types of individuals."
Along with changes to Miller Park additional renovations are also scheduled for Patton Parkway. Georgia Avenue will soon close to allow for those renovations to begin.
“We’re looking forward to project completion this summer,” said Mr. Jackson. “First Tennessee understands the importance of supporting projects that add to the fabric of our downtown. We’re looking forward to a place that will welcome and provide interaction for our citizens.”
