Rush/Shelby REMC Grants Funds

The Rush/Shelby REMC showed its support of our trail system with a generous $4,000 grant.  Grant funds will be used to add to and expand the Nickel Plate Trail.  The Nickel Plate Trail will encompass the entire city, making a continual loop from north to south, through the utilization of old canal beds, unused railroad tracks, and existing streets and pathways.  Phase 1 of trail construction begins at the intersection of 32nd Street and Park Road and travels .74 of a mile north to Lick Creek.  A true rails-to-trails project, this initial section of trail has transformed abandoned railroad tracks into a community asset.  The trail is paved to accommodate for bikes, strollers, other recreational, non-motorized sports equipment, and handicapped persons.
