The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) is pleased to announce a series of Regional Trails Public Forums to better understand the community's priorities for trail connections, safety and design preferences, and local trail use.
Tri-County is developing a plan and feasibility study for our regional trails system to improve the quality of life for our region's residents and take advantage of our region's central geographic location to bolster Mid-Michigan as a hub for local businesses, communities, and visitors. Trails are more than a recreational asset! They bring economic prosperity, healthy transportation options, and many other benefits to our communities and to those who walk and bike in our region.
The goal of this plan is to create a conceptual blueprint of identified routes that can connect the existing trails network within Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties to major trails throughout the state, and along the way, to regional assets like local parks and recreation facilities, employment centers, municipal assets, and other community spaces and amenities.
Tri-County will be hosting three public forums in communities throughout the region to gather feedback for the plan:
