WRIGHT COUNTY PLANS TO DEVELOP A COUNTY-WIDE TRAILS PLAN
Volunteers are needed to serve on the County Trails Master Plan Committee
Wright County, IA: Wright County Economic Development is excited to announce Wright County’s plans to develop a County-wide network of trails that will benefit citizens, visitors, and the entire region.
Highlighting lush greenery and spectacular views, the Wright County Trails System will provide connection to cities and attractions within the County as well as to the greater region. The Trail System will increase transportation options, encourage access to outdoor recreation and physical activity, and inspire appreciation of the County’s natural beauty for residents and visitors of all ages and abilities.
Bryce Davis, Wright County Economic Development Director, says “From my discussions in our communities and around the region, I truly believe there is an opportunity to develop a comprehensive and implementable Master Trails Plan in Wright County that enhances our natural beauty, complements our community amenities, and continues to build upon our approximate $17.44 million (2015) tourism industry.”
The County, with planning assistance provided by the Mid-Iowa Development Association (MIDAS) Council of Governments, invites interested residents to help guide this project by serving on the Wright County Trails Master Plan Committee. Volunteers will assist with:
- Shaping the plan and project phases
- Sharing citizen and community concerns, priorities, and comments
Individuals interested in serving on the Wright County Trails Master Plan Committee should contact Sara Sheller, Wright County Economic Development Marketing Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-532-6422 by July 7, 2017.
