Plymouth County and Le Mars officials have taken the first steps to consider a proposal to create the Ply-Wood recreational bike and hiking trail.
The proposed $10 million dollar 16 mile long trail would start at Le Mars and follow the Floyd River to Sioux City.
Chris McGowan, the President of the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce says the trail would benefit both communities and counties:
OC……….of life initiatives. ;25
The Le Mars city council approved a resolution of support for the proposed trail at their meeting last week.
The Plymouth County Board of Supervisors also discussed the trail.
Supervisor Don Kass was concerned about the costs of maintaining the trail:
OC……….go from there. :22
Supervisor Craig Andersen says several constituents have told him they don’t want the supervisors to spend tax money for the proposed bike trail.
The cost would be part of the second edition of the Le Mars Community Betterment Project.
