Bill including trail projects goes to Senate

State Rep. Aaron Miller has announced funding for two local trail projects were included in a bill approved last week by the Michigan House for recreation projects and land acquisition.
Thanks to the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund, an allotment in excess of $913,000 will pay for development of a trail from the Three Rivers Health Trail in the city limits to Meyer Broadway Park in Fabius Township. The trail includes parking on South Health Parkway, bends north to Millard Road, and follows the Millard Road right-of-way to Meyer Broadway Park. These trails will link a number of neighborhoods and schools to parks, waterfronts, commercial centers and other heavily used facilities.
The second project is a development along the St. Joseph River Water Trail to provide a river trail route accessible to people with disabilities along the St. Joseph River by installing two EZ Dock systems with built-in features to aid with river access for all users. The river trail route will provide access to the St. Joseph River and increase its recreational use and create additional fishing opportunities, at a cost of $62,500.
The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
