The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism and Kanza Rails-Trails Conservancy welcome all interested citizens to share their impressions and opinions on the development of the Flint Hills Nature Trails at an upcoming design workshop in Osage City, Kansas on April 21, 2014.
The Flint Hills Nature Trail is a rails-to-trails project that extends 117 miles from Osawatomie to Herington. Development of the trail will encourage outdoor recreation and provide safer routes for pedestrians, bicyclists, and equestrians. The trail will connect six counties and numerous communities along the way.
The design team of CFS Engineers and RDG Planning and Design is leading the planning and design of the trail under the direction of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism (KDWPT) and Kanza Rails-Trails Conservancy (KRTC).
A significant element of the project is gathering an understanding of public opinions on development of the trail through a series of community workshops. These are open sessions and interested residents are invited to attend at their convenience. The workshop format will allow attendees to gather information on trail planning and design and to talk one-on-one with design team members.
Workshop will be held:
Monday, April 21
5:00 pm to 7:30 pm
517 S. First Street
Osage City, KS 66523
