Regional Trails Summit August 25 in Kalkaska

The US-131 Regional Trails Summit is being held as part of the US-131 Economic Development Initiative. The Trails Summit is being held to:

  • identify issues and successes between trail users
  • identify solutions to trail issues
  • provide education as to the economic benefit of trails and how a community can best attract/accommodate trail users
  • discuss the future of Michigan trail tourism

‚ÄčThe Summit will include presentations on the economic benefits of trails, and a panel of different trail user groups discussing conflicts and collaborations between them. 

The Summit will run from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Kalkaska Kaliseum Conference Room.



Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
