This just in from the City of Columbus’ announcements: Exciting news about the long-awaited connector between the Alum Creek Trail coming from Westerville to Easton, and the same trail that goes from the airport to downtown and beyond.
SUPPORTING BIKEWAY DEVELOPMENT AND THE ALUM CREEK TRAIL: The City of Columbus is committed to providing residents with alternative means of transportation through cycling and walking. Priscilla R. Tyson, Chair of the Recreation and Parks committee, is sponsoring ordinance 1635-2009 which will authorize the acceptance and appropriation of a $3,000,000.00 grant from the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission for the Alum Creek Trail Sunbury Road to Innis Park Project. The ordinance also authorizes the expenditure of $3,716,531.33, which includes a contingency of $162,650.00 from the Voted 1999/2004 Park and Recreation Bond Fund and Recreation and Parks grant funds for continued construction of the project. The 2.2 mile trail will link parks, schools and neighborhoods along the stream corridor and has been recognized as a key component of the greenway network by many organizations.
