Celebrating Our Hometown Spirit
Mayor’s Welcome: Greeting New Residents to Trinity
We have several new residents in Trinity and I wanted to take a brief moment to introduce myself to those of you who may not know me. I, myself, am a West Morgan graduate and lifelong Trinity resident. I’ve been married to my best friend Deanna Childress Goodwin for 24 years. I decided to become involved in local government in 1994. I have a sincere goal of seeing my and my family’s hometown grow and flourish.
Recently, we have been blessed to be a part of some exciting developments surrounding our community. The Council and I are pleased to implement plans to see our Town thrive with our residents in mind. I hope this newsletter provides you with an insight into how dedicated we are to making Trinity an enjoyable place to call home. We have an outstanding group of leadership and employees, and we are more dedicated than ever to keeping things moving in a positive direction. I look forward to updating you again soon!
2nd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting
On November 30th at 4:30 p.m., Trinity will light up its Christmas tree for the 2nd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting. Trinity Baptist Church and Trinity United Methodist Church will be there, offering cookies and hot chocolate. Enjoy live music from the West Morgan High School Band and beautiful carols from the West Morgan Elementary School choir and Trinity United Methodist Choir. Don't forget to take a picture with Santa - you can use your own phone or camera. This year, the tree is even bigger and more dazzling, and there's a new photo spot for memorable moments.
Christmas Tree Trail
The Christmas Tree Trail is a must-see with 35 beautifully decorated trees. It's located at Caboose Park, at the corner of Old Trinity Road and North Seneca Drive, and will be open from December 1st to 31st. You can also sponsor a tree for $125.00 - but hurry, the sponsorship deadline is November 16th at 4 p.m. It's a great way to showcase your festive spirit and support the community.
Get ready for the Trinity Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 2nd, starting at 10:00 a.m. It's an exciting parade with stunning floats, and the best part is that there's no entry fee. You can even win cash prizes for the top three floats. Join the parade to spread holiday joy and compete for those 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.
Where Small Town Meets Big Heart
As the holiday season approaches, we’re getting ready to shine with the Christmas spirit. From the 2nd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting with carols, hot chocolate, and Santa's visit to our beloved Christmas Tree Trail with its 35 beautifully decorated trees, and Christmas Parade where creativity meets community, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Trinity is coming together to celebrate the warmth and joy of Christmas, making it a season to remember.
Exciting changes are on the horizon in Trinity, Alabama, as the town focuses on enhancing its community spaces. Kimbrel Park is set for upgrades, with plans to improve landscaping and playground equipment. The town is actively seeking grants to make these enhancements possible and has even begun forming a beautification committee to ensure the park's continued improvement.Municipal Park is also in line for some exciting transformations. In the near future, a brand new pavilion and a pickleball court are on the way. The new pavilion is expected to be up and ready for use by the end of the year.

TRINITY RECEIVES $1.3M GRANT FOR TRAFFIC IMPROVEMENTS
The town of Trinity is set to receive a substantial boost in traffic infrastructure. Recently, a $1.3 million grant was secured from ATRIP to fund crucial upgrades in traffic signal reconfiguration and intersection improvements. The focus of this project is to enhance turning lanes at the intersection of South Greenway Drive and West Morgan Road. Currently in the engineering phase, construction is scheduled to commence after the conclusion of the school year. These improvements hold great promise for easing traffic congestion during school hours, ensuring smoother and safer transportation for all.
We'd like to offer some friendly reminders to our residents and local businesses. If you operate a business within the city limits or police jurisdiction of Trinity, please ensure you have the necessary business license and permits. This requirement not only helps us maintain accountability but also ensures that companies are responsible for their work within our community. As a protective measure, we ask contractors to provide proof of general liability insurance, and sub-trade contractors must furnish proof of their sub-trade certification. Remember, in the event of an accident involving a contractor on your private property, you could be held responsible, potentially affecting your homeowner's insurance. For verification of a valid and current license, feel free to call us at 256-353-2474, extension 201.
If you're considering in-home occupations, such as sales or services of any kind, please note that approval from the Town Planning Commission and Council is required. Contact us at 256-353-2474, extension 201, for additional information. These reminders are part of our commitment to ensuring a safe and well-regulated community for all our residents and businesses.
A TASTY NEW ADDITION
Trinity is buzzing with anticipation as we prepare to welcome our first chain restaurant. Domino's Pizza is set to make its home in the shopping center located at 3036 Gordon Terry Parkway in the upcoming months. This addition promises a convenient and delicious dining option for our community. Stay tuned for more updates as Trinity continues to grow.
Where Spirit Shines
Trinity is filled with spirit and positive developments, particularly in the education and arts sectors. Our schools have seen significant improvements, including a new high school and the addition of School Resource Officers (SROs) in all three schools. Notably, the football program, under the guidance of Coach Drew Phillips and his staff, is thriving and bringing pride to our town. Trinity deeply appreciates the values and life lessons the coaches instill in our young athletes. Coach Phillips, his staff, and his players have been chosen as grand marshals for this year's Christmas parade.
In another exciting announcement, Trinity extends a warm welcome to Tim Clinton, the renowned director of the West Morgan Mighty Rebel Band. Mr. Clinton's return from retirement to lead the band is a cause for celebration. His exceptional talent is well-known throughout North Alabama, and his contributions to the arts have left a lasting impact. To honor his legacy, a scholarship fund has been established in his name at the University of North Alabama (UNA). Trinity is thrilled to have such a gifted and passionate individual back in our community, enriching our artistic and educational landscape.
We also extend our congratulations to the West Morgan Lady Rebels volleyball team making it to regionals and a heartfelt thank you to the cheerleaders for their unwavering dedication and support. Additionally, we want to express our deep gratitude to the school faculty and students for their incredible contributions to our town and the inspiration they provide to the entire community.
