Here's a chance for citizens to make their opinions heard and help make a positive difference!
The Metroparks Serving Summit County is planning a new bike-hike trail in the Tallmadge area. The proposed new trail will be called the Freedom Secondary Trail, and will start at the Portage Hike and Bike Trail in Kent, connect to the Tallmadge Trail, and continue west to the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. A possible spur will connect to the Metroparks Bike & Hike Trail in Munroe Falls.
A public meeting is being held on Thursday, January 22 from 5:00 to 7:00pm at the Tallmadge Community Center at 80 Community Drive, Tallmadge, Ohio 44278. The meeting will be an open house format, where visitors can see graphic displays, talk to park staff and consultants, and make comments. For more information about the meeting, call Park Engineer Paul Wilkinson at 330-865-8040 x210.
Even if you have no concerns about the trail, just showing up would be a great way to let local officials know that there is interest and support for these kinds of projects!
