Re: Great Sauk Trail Information and Public Participation Event
Planning is underway for the proposed “Great Sauk Trail” that will convert eight miles of unused rail corridor into a multi-use trail from Sauk City through the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area and into Devil’s Lake State Park. A trail commission comprised of appointed representatives from Sauk County and trail-adjacent local units of government has been formed to develop the future trail. As part of the planning process the Great Sauk Trail (GST) Commission is seeking public input on a number of key decisions.
How you can get involved:
Attend an information and public participation event on Wednesday, September 24th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM at the River Arts Center located at 105 9th Street in Prairie du Sac, WI. The event will include a presentation that will provide a brief synopsis of the rails to trails process, current status of the rail line, an overview of the Great Sauk Trail planning process, and the proposed route. The evening will also include a variety of opportunities for participants to provide input on the future trail.
