NW Michigan "Grand Vision" Plan - Give Your Input

Greetings from Old Town in Traverse City,

The Grand Vision Decision is underway! The first of several presentations scheduled took place last night at a packed State Theatre. Senator Carl Levin, MDOT Director Kirk Steudel and other organizers including TART Trails’ Bob Otwell as chair of TC-TALUS spoke and then the consultants presented findings from the year long visioning process.

Now is the time to decide what our region can look like fifty years from now. I urge you to visit www.thegrandvision.org and explore the resulting four scenarios. After reviewing and considering the information click on the “The Grand Vision Scorecard,” answer the questions and send it in. The implications are critically important. Planning, zoning and funding decisions will emanate from this process in the years ahead and the TART Trails mission has a vested interest in each of those.

Trails, pedestrian ways and biking in general play a role in all four of the scenarios. As you will see however, moving from scenario A through B, C and to D the need for more and better bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure increases. Also as you will see, moving from A through to D less money is required for roads leaving more resources available for those things we as an organization are advocating for; road shoulders, trails, sidewalks, traffic calming measures and safer intersections.

Please forward this email to your friends and neighbors who will be impacted so they can have a chance to weigh in.
