The wheels are turning for
a Logan County trail plan. The public is invited to the Steinfort Conference
Center at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 6 p.m.
to hear about a Logan County bicycle and trailway plan and get involved to
help move the project forward.
The plan provides a framework for
transportation enhancements for bicyclists, pedestrians, in-line
skaters and non-motorized vehicles throughout Logan County.
The master plan was developed under
the guidance of the Logan County Regional Planning Commission. The
design was completed by Farnsworth Group using a grant from the
Illinois Department of Transportation. The plan was approved by the
Logan County Regional Planning Commission in February and by the
Logan County Board in May.
The Healthy Communities Partnership
is collaborating with the planning commission to host this public
opportunity to discuss the approved plan, hear feedback and help set
goals to implement the plan. The Healthy Communities Partnership is
a collaborative organization comprised of dozens of community
agencies and supported by the Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation.
