based on a news article at WZZM TV 13 , "Funds for Lowell trail beginning to come in," Mar 28, 2009

Half of the $1.5 million dollars need to build the Lowell Area Trailway will need to come from donations. At the Lowell Community Expo the leaders announced that they are well on their way. $360,000 has been raised to date.

The three-mile trail will connect several well-used locations in the city of Lowell and the surrounding area. The first phase of the trail will connect Lowell High School and the nature center with Creekside Park, Cherry Creek Elementary and downtown Lowell.

Congressman Vern Ehlers was on hand for the announcement and praised the community for it's successful efforts. The trail is planned to be a multi-use recreation trail linking Vergennes Township and Lowell Township with the City of Lowell. The proposed trail will make extensive use of public land to connect schools and parks within the communities.

Half of the money will come from state and federal grants. Leaders hope half will come from donations; the other half from state and federal grants.
