“To allow Stringer’s Ridge to be developed would be the same as bulldozing Central Park in New York.”

—Jeffrey Shaerschmidt, president of SORBA Chattanooga, in support of efforts to protect a 97-acre slope on the edge of downtown Chattanooga. If the Trust for Public Land can raise the remaining $400,000 of the $2.5 million asking price, SORBA plans to build seven miles of sustainable singletrack along the ridge.
