[October 09, 2013]  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 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.

A comprehensive trailway system enhances the overall quality of life. Trails play an important role in health and wellness of the populations they serve. Research has shown that walking and biking may help reduce cases of asthma, decrease rates of obesity, lower health care costs and even improve mental health.
