The Dickinson County Bike Path idea was “born” in the Dickinson County Planning Commission Dec. 2006.
Upon further information, it was discovered that some cities had been or were working on a bike path system over the past few/several years.
All ten cities and townships in Dickinson County are now updating their Recreation plan (to apply for grant monies). This Recreation Plan has to be updated every 5 years per State requirements.
There is also a State of Michigan desire to have a state-wide bike path system.
We (the bike path committee) are also working with and are in communication with other Michigan counties, Wisconsin counties, CUPPAD, State of Michigan officials, and other organizations to facilitate a cooperative functional bike path system.
All ten cities and townships in Dickinson County are joining forces and working together as one big community effort to proceed on this huge endeavor, of not only having an updated Rec. Plan, but also to have a County-wide bike path system.
