An exchange program with the City of Oconto two years ago has an Algoma group looking at how to maximize the benefit of having the Ahnapee State Trail coming into the city. The program is called First Impressions and that’s exactly what visitors from Oconto offered to Algoma. Community Volunteer Dave Robertson says his group has been working for a year a half on ideas to connect walkers and bikers on the trail spur with the rest of the city.
Robertson says his group will collect feedback from residents at a public meeting Tuesday at the Algoma Boat Club at 6 p.m. The final plan will be presented to the city council for approval. He says another goal of the project is to support the health and well-being of the community by providing high-quality recreational assets. A copy of the First Impressions results presented to Algoma is available in a link online.
