The Dickson City Council approved on first reading the annexation of 20 acres it recently purchased to add to J. Dan Buckner Park. Public hearings were held last week on a plan of services and proposal to annex the 20 acres purchased from the Kathleen Tidwell estate. After nobody spoke during the hearings, the council unanimously passed a plan of services for the area that called for no additional expense to the city other than a plan to eventually extend Bruce Drive to provide access to the area. The council also approved on the first of two required readings an ordinance to annex the site into the city limits. In July, the council voted to pay $26,500 for 20 landlocked acres adjacent to 62 acres the city bought last November. The additional 82 acres purchased in the last year grow the city’s largest park to 202 acres. The city bought 62 acres for $93,000 from the Neal Tidwell estate last year. The Dickson Parks Board is currently reviewing requests for qualifications from companies to create a master plan for developing the additional property for recreational purposes.
