Recreational trail one stop closer to reality for residents


A trail connecting Orange City, Iowa to Alton is one step closer to becoming concrete.

The recreational trail would connect the two cities, and wrap around a pond in each town.  The project would include a playground, camping site, fishing areas, and docks.

Planners held several public input sessions to hear what people want and they say having the outdoor space is a benefit to residents.

"I really think those are important things for communities especially with existing families in the community but also families looking to move to a certain area," says Mitch Aalbers.  "If you have those opportunities, it's really a good thing for your city."

Since the trail is just in the planning stages, leaders don't have a total cost for the project or when construction could start.

There is a third and final public meeting on the project Thursday night at 6:30 at city hall in Orange City.  At 6:45, the landscaper working on the plans, will give a presentation on the findings from the meetings.
