Chamber of Commerce receives grant for exercise trail
Trail can be used for skating, skateboarding, too
FRANKFORT, KY: Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Governor's Office for Local Development (GOLD) presented a ceremonial check for a $6,800 Recreational Trails grant to Adair County officials on Tuesday, July 11, 2006. Funds will be used for construction of a new blacktop exercise trail.
"The Lake Cumberland region has done a fantastic job in attracting visitors through sensible development of its natural surroundings," said Governor Fletcher. "This funding will allow even more citizens to enjoy this area, and will encourage healthy lifestyles."
The trail will be used for walking, jogging, hiking, in-line skating and skate boarding. Several rest areas will be built along the trail.
"I am excited to see Adair County get funding for a project that everyone can enjoy," said Senator Vernie McGaha (R-Russell Springs). "When this addition is complete it will be another great place that the entire community can use."
"It is important to expand opportunities for recreational development," said Representative Russ Mobley, Campbellsville. "This funding is sure to benefit our community."
The Recreational Trails Program is funded through the Federal Highway Administration and may be used to acquire land for recreational trails and to develop and renovate trails for both motorized and non-motorized use. Recreational Trails funding is administered by the Governor's Office for Local Development.
