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!
The UAW local 2209 is raising money for more trail development, June 15th!
