FCRT Spring Open House & Speaker, May 22, 2018
On May 22, join us at River Crest Hall for our traditional Spring Speaker Meeting. Our special guest this year will be the new Executive Director of the Michigan Greenways and Trails Alliance, Bob Wilson:
Bob clearly has a passion for trails. In the ‘90s, he was the Policy Advisor for the Michigan Senate Majority Policy Office, where he developed recommendations for and helped to guide passage of the Michigan Trailways Act which provided for the
foundation of a statewide system of trails designed to meet key standards. The legislation also created the Michigan Trailways Council of which he was the chair taking public testimony on the issues of key trail development in the state. His most recent round of trail development policy was the revision of the Michigan Trailways Act in 2014 to include new concepts of Pure Michigan Trails, Pure Michigan Trail Towns and Pure
Michigan Water Trails to help provide the recognition of the high quality of our trails and trail towns and to further encourage trail groups and city officials to work toward a standard of trail
development that helps to ensure the public of a quality trail experience.
