The Vision

Public Open House

August 22, 2018

A Public Open House was held on August 22, 2018 at the Elk Rapids Harbor Pavilion. TART Trails provided a presentation on the proposed TC ↔ CHX Trail and the preliminary design process for the Acme through Elk Rapids Segment. Attendees were invited to provide input using comment cards on the trail and the proposed alternative routes. Large maps of the alternative routes were placed around the room and TART Trails staff and engineering consultants were on hand for questions and discussion. Close to 200 people attended. Following the Open House, public comment was accepted through an online comment form through September 7, 2018. The form included the same questions as the comment cards from the Open House. Around 200 hard copy and online forms were submitted between August 22, 2018 and September 7, 2018. A summary of the public input collected is below.
