Meetings will be taking place across the state at 14 locations to discuss recreational trail funding and development issues. The meetings will be open to the public and will be set up in an open house format so attendees are encouraged to arrive anytime.
The meeting for Wood, Williams, Defiance, Henry, Fulton, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, and Erie counties will take place on Tuesday, September 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Otsego Stone Hall (20000 West River Road, Bowling Green, OH 43402, 419-826-3424).
The discussion will revolve around identifying priority trails in the state, identifying key issues facing trail development and what assistance the Office of Trails can provide, as well as the development of an online statewide recreational trail map. Findings from these meetings will help guide the Ohio Department of Natural Resources trail grant programs for the next several years. Local participation is critical to producing a complete and visionary planning tool to ensure a coordinated approach to statewide, regional and community trail systems.
