In-Town Trail Update by Trustee West

In-Town Trail Update by Trustee West 

I would like to give you an update on the progress of the In-Town trail efforts. As you know we started working on this process last summer.  We held meetings, a public input session and online public input. We then handed over the public input to C2AE the engineering firm working on the Acme to Elk Rapids Trail. After reviewing the public input, trail team input and driving the routes, C2AE recommended the route down South Bayshore to River Street, as the first choice. Once this recommendation was made we reached out to landowners adjacent to the recommended route to invite them to an informational meeting. This meeting occurred on Monday the 9th, with about 20 attendees, and we received a lot of good feedback. The residents along the route that were unable to attend now have the opportunity view the information online and reach out with questions and concerns. We are currently evaluating the feedback received thus far. On Wednesday Caroline Kennedy and I did a ride through with the Police Chief to discuss safety concerns brought up at Monday’s meeting. I will keep you abreast with updates regarding the In-Town Trail efforts.

The information provided at Monday night’s meeting is on-line at the link below. You may also express your comments and questions via this forum.
