I joined the Fort Wayne Trails Board as a representative of one of the organizations that was merged to create Fort Wayne Trails, Inc. I have been a long-time supporter of Greenway and Trail development in our community as a quality of life amenity and a required community investment for economic development.
The trail system is an important quality of life amenity for our community and it is a necessary investment in our future to attract new businesses and the employees that will work for them.
I am an amateur triathlete and I use the trails extensively in training.
I believe the idea of creating a fully developed and connected trail system that serves the entire community is the mission directive that most excites me.
We have done a wonderful job in developing the trail system so far but we have so much more to do. I wish I could show people what other communities are doing(Philadelphia, Atlanta, St. Louis, Nashville and others) so that they could see that what we have could be so much more!
