What should we be thinking about when it comes to making improvements so that more people can enjoy all that our communities have to offer? The Fox Valley region is full of walking and biking trails that connect our communities. But who uses them and are they accessible to all? How do we begin talking about terms like, “Environmental Justice,” and “Transportation Equity?” In this Voices from the Valley episode, we update you on several projects in the Valley, including exciting news about the creation of a recreation pedestrian and bicycle trail connecting the Fox Valley to High Cliff State Park.
There are so many ways people are getting involved in these projects, from generous donors who are supporting these projects financially, to local leaders and environmental specialists who are rolling up their sleeves to talk about the best way to improve trails in the Fox Valley. Last year, a Fox Cities Trail Summit organized by the nonprofit Fox Cities Greenways and the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, was funded by a grant from the Bright Idea Fund within the Community Foundation.
