Trail Talk in Calhoun County

Where do you want to see Trails, Bike Lanes and Non-Motorized facilities in Calhoun County? Give your input at a public meeting on Thursday November 12, 2009 from 6:30-8:30pm. This event is free and open to the public. The event will be held at the City of Marshall Public Service Building 900 S. Marshall Ave., Marshall, MI 49068

At this meeting attendees will accomplish the following:
1.Create a vision of connected trails in southwest Michigan.
2.Discuss the prioritization of projects.
3.Test the usability of the existing Southwest Michigan bike map.

This public input meeting will contribute to the progress of the 9-county Non-Motorized Transportation Plan for Southwest Michigan. The 9-county plan will be utilized by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), local officials and advocacy groups to prioritize non-motorized investments in the region and will provide a vision for a non-motorized transportation network that will be used to secure private and governmental funding for implementation. Plan development is being funded by MDOT.

The Southwest Michigan Planning Commission (SWMPC) is facilitating and writing the 9-county plan with assistance from the Southwest Michigan Alliance for Recreation Trails (SMART). The SWMPC is working with several partners to develop the plan, including Calhoun County Road Commission, Fort Custer Horse Friends Association, the North Country Trail Chief Noonday Chapter, the Calhoun County Trailway Alliance, and the City of Marshall along with many others.

Let’s work together to create a connected non-motorized trail system!
