The Cleveland City Council voted on Monday afternoon to support the creation of a multi-use stage on part of the Greenway.
The venue would be approximately 30 feet by 30 feet and could be used for everything from concerts to family movie nights.
Greenway Board Chairman Cameron Fisher said that seating would be on the grass, where everyone could bring their own lawn chairs or blankets.
Chairman Fisher also noted that the construction would be entirely from volunteer labor, with services offered by the organization Men and Women of Action.
He said, "Personally, I have no other builder I would like to give this to."
During the meeting, it was also announced that construction on the Cleveland High School Gymnasium has begun. For those interested, live webcam footage of the project will be available for viewing at clevelandschools.org.
An ordinance was also passed concerning mobile food units. All signs must now be a part of the unit and the units must operate on private property.
However, the part of the ordinance that would have required units to leave the premises between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m. was deleted and not included. Council members were concerned that moving the units to homes each night would be disruptive.
Chattanooga, Memphis and Knoxville have similar ordinances. Chattanooga is the only city that requires mobile food units to pack up each night, officials said.
Also during the meeting, Mayor Tom Rowland was honored for his time serving as mayor. State Rep. Kevin Brooks presented him with a framed copy of the resolution that names the future APD 40 Interchange for him. It will be called the "Honorable Mayor Tom Rowland Interchange."
The interchange will be constructed between exit 20 on I-75 and US 11.
