Trail Development News from around the Nation

27 04 2007

I’ll be posting news from around the country periodically detailing how other communities are proposing, developing, funding and building trails.  These examples provide tangible evidence of the success of trail development and in many cases provide concrete examples of the exact things we are doing here in Duluth.  I found several good articles today, so I’ll post the links below.  Note the emphasis these communities place on health, connectiveness, safe routes to school and also how these projects are being funded.  Happy reading!

Trail connects schools, safe-routes-to school funding, promotes health:
