Phase I of the Non-Motorized Map Update and Plan for MDOT?s Southwest Region (Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Van Buren Counties) was approved by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). This proposal would not have been completed without the hard work of the SMART Task Force. The Southwest Michigan Planning Commission will be the lead agency.

The Mid America Trails and Greenways Conference will be Oct 25-28, 2009. SMART is also lending their assistance to Nancy Krupiarz (MTGA) in the planning and volunteering for the Mid America Trails and Greenways Conference to be held on October 25-28, 2009 in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the Radisson Hotel. It will be great to work with Kalamazoo City and County, the Kalamazoo River Valley Trailway and many others who worked so hard to get the conference in Kalamazoo.

Professionals, advocates and trail users are working together to create a growing network of greenways and trails tying together people, places and pportunities for recreation. In the spirit of working together, the 4th Mid-America Trails & Greenways Conference celebrates existing and new connections and offers an excellent opportunity for all those involved in trails and greenways to share our experiences, learn from each other and continue connecting our trails and greenways.

Kalamazoo combines a wealth of recreational trails, parks and natural areas with a vibrant mix of historic neighborhoods and a renovated and vibrant Art Deco downtown. Named by the Urban Land Institute as “Top Ten Turnaround Downtown”, Kalamazoo offers many award-winning visitor destinations from brewpubs and wineries to outstanding museums to sparking lakes and rivers that will offer an enjoyable experience for all participants.
