My Town: City leaders to weigh in on North Bank Trail funding

CROCKERY TOWNSHIP, Mich.—Monday night, the Coopersville City Council is expected to weigh in on a plan to fund a new trail connecting Spring Lake to Coopersville.

The North Bank Trail would be an 18-mile pathway that would connect the Spring Lake Bike Path to the east end of the Musketawa Trail.  Crockery Township is asking for the City of Coopersville’s support in seeking project funding from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund.  Coopersville City Manager Steven Patrick is recommending the city council approve a resolution supporting the trust fund application, saying the trail would offer economic benefits.

The Walker City Commission is also expected to approve a resolution Monday, supporting the trust fund application for Phase 2 of the trail.

The Friends of the North Bank Trail group has been meeting since August 2006 to organize the project.  Meetings are the fourth Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. at the Crockery Township Hall, 17431 112th Ave. in Nunica.

The Coopersville City Council's meeting is scheduled form 7 p.m. Monday, March 24.
