2010 Trail Steering Committee

In 2010, the Charlevoix County Parks Committee formed a Non-motorized Trail Steering Committee, composed of residents and local officials along the trail route, to address public concerns regarding the proposed Boyne City to Charlevoix Non-motorized Trail.  With the assistance of MSU Extension, through a series of public meetings, the Steering Committee identified citizen concerns and developed recommendations on how to address those concerns.

The Non-motorized Trail Steering Committee completed its work on October 19, 2010.
