Updates from all over
« on: March 05, 2010, 11:59:26 am »
Progress continues, as we work to get local approvals.  We have been in touch with Heather Venzke of the City of Ludington with regard to the portion of the route that will coincide with USBR 35.  We have got local approvals from several communities, and all private owners of facilities along the route (the ferries at each end and the Frankenmuth Covered Bridge).

Just this week, we officially received word of the first county-level approvals.  In St. Clair County, where the route is a mixture of roads and trails, the County Road Commission approved a route on a 4-0 vote.  In Isabella County, where the route uses the Pere Marquette rail trail, the County Board of Commissioners and the County Parks and Recreation Commission approved the route.

We (myself, Kerry, Paul) will be talking about this at the Michigan Bicycle Summit in Lansing on March 27.  Go to for details, we'd love to see everyone there!

Hi all,

We have got another resolution of support, this time from the Clare County Road Commission.  So only a couple months into the part of the project where we are seeking support, we have official resolutions or letters from the following:

City of Marine City
City of Clare
Clare County Parks and Recreation Commission
Clare County Road Commission
Village of Farwell
St. Clair County Road Commission
Osceola County Road Commission
City of Ludington
Isabella County Parks and Recreation
Isabella County Board of Commissioners

Not bad for a short time :)  We'll keep plugging away!

Latest approval: City of Frankenmuth.  We will be meeting soon with the Tuscola County Road Commission, and expect to soon be in touch with Frankenmuth Township.
