The Starke County Commissioners will submit a jurisdictional letter of support toward the Prairie Trails Club’s application for the state’s Recreational Trails Grant Program. Governor Holcomb has set aside $90 million in grant funding for walking and biking trails to connect throughout the state.
The club members would like to extend the current trail two miles from U.S. 35 east and south to the Pulaski County line and toward Monterey.
Starke County Economic Development Foundation Executive Director Larry Wickert explained in a previous report that the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum representatives have given their approval to move forward with the project as they own the property involved in the proposed plans.
The grant application is due Feb. 15.
