A meeting seeking public input on the trail was held in March. That input was used to develop the draft plan, which includes ideas that will provide an attractive alternative commuting route and recreational area for community members to meet and enjoy the outdoors.
The proposed trail would run down the old Milwaukee railroad right-of-way, which starts at the east end of Appleway Blvd. at University Rd. and continues east to Evergreen Rd. Features and amenities of the trail include:
• A meandering pathway;
• Casual seating areas;
• Space for potential community gardens;
• Grasses and wildflowers;
• Shade trees;
• Birdhouses, and more.
