Matching funding for trail network development
There is federal funding available to municipalities for "covid resilience recovery" that will pay for trails and bike lanes. As we have experienced over the last few months, there has been a huge demand for outdoor space, especially walking and biking trails. In many areas, also parking has become a huge problem. As a member of the Midland Active Transportation Committee, I would like the Town of Midland to revisit a request from the committee from last year, to look into the Vindin Street Trail development in the 2021 budget. Now that we are seeing completion of the county's multi use recreation trail on 93, it would be great to have a proper off-road trail link between the Waterfront Trail (Pete Petterson Park) to CR93. Thank you for your consideration.
