County asks for public input on trail network

St. Clair County agencies are announcing a trail planning project with the goal of connecting area recreational trails to a statewide system. The first round of public input sessions will take place next Tuesday with both a lunchtime focus group session at the county’s administration building, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and an early evening focus group session at Sperry’s Second Floor Dinnerhouse, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The public is invited to both sessions to provide input on the future of the countywide trail network.
“This is an important step for our region, including stretching into downtown Richmond,” said County Board Chair Jeff Bohm. “Over these last several years we have seen significant new developments throughout our region, and now is the time to see if we connect these new developments and assets with a completed regional pedestrian trail system.” The planning process is being supported by a $100,000 grant to from the Ralph C. Wilson Junior Foundation.
