Help to create opportunities for safe walking & bicycling in Morehead

Connie Spencer-Ackmerman of Daniel Boone Rails to Trails recently shared this announcement:

I want to share news of a very important first step in creating opportunities for safe walking and bicycling in Morehead. Earlier in the month I met again with the City Council to ask for support to develop a written plan that can be used to guide trail development and seek funding. Council advised me to meet with the Planning and Zoning Commission, which I did later that week. I committed to working every step of the way with Joe Parson, who oversees planning and zoning for the city. The Commission asked me to form a committee and notify that body when a committee is formed. An encouraging sign is that two Commission members volunteered to serve on the committee.

Please let me know if you would also like to serve. Even if you prefer not to serve at this time, I'm interested in your thoughts about other partners to engage in the process.

If you have the opportunity, please express to Council and Commission members your interest in this project. We can be especially appreciative of Joe's support over the past couple of years. Thank you for your patience throughout this effort.

If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Connie at dbrtinfo@yahoo.com
