I think a multi-use trail would be a great opportunity to drive business to people who've already invested in our town of Van Buren. A multi-use path would drive foot traffic, bike traffic, increase tourism from the local area, and provide an opportunity for our community to improve it's health.
Looking at a map, I think it could be accomplished on side roads and back roads between each of those locations where it would be minimal impact on existing zones/construction.
I grew up in a small town in Indiana, but I would go to the city to bike/run/rollerblade on this trail:
The Monon Trail has been a huge boon for the local community with businesses boosted that were near or connected to the trial and new businesses have popped up over the years.
This would have to be phased and scaled, but has a ton of potential--maybe work with Ft Smith and connect to the Rice-Cardin trail by the river. I appreciate any consideration given to this idea.
