Press Release - America Walks and GM Community Change Grant Work Completed in Trenton

November 7, 2022

America Walks and General Motors Community Change Grant Work Completed in Trenton, MI

Trenton Trail Town was awarded a 2021 America Walks General Motors Change Grant and has completed installation of wayfinding signage throughout Downtown Trenton and the Iron Belle Trail along West Jefferson from Sibley Rd to Vreeland. Signage allows cyclists and pedestrians safely marked directional routes for recreating along the trail system. The Downriver Linked Greenways provided a mapping study to Trenton’s DPS staff and Russ Foster, Grounds and Forestry Supervisor that was used to place the signs in designated locations.

“The Community Change Grant program supports the growing network of advocates, organizations, and agencies working to advance walkability. Grants are awarded to innovative, engaging, and inclusive programs and projects. These projects create a real, tangible opportunity for walking and movement at the community level. Applications for these grants were received in 2021 and the awardees will work to complete their projects in 2022.”-https://americawalks.org/announcing-the-2021-community-change-grantees/

Trail Town partnered with the Trenton Rotary Club to promote the signage and trail usage in mid October. Almost 70 people participated in the Slow Roll which began and ended at a local restaurant, the Roundhouse, where participants enjoyed food, beverage, and lawn games. Participants overwhelmingly supported having more events like this on a regular basis and with club shirts. The Committee will meet in November to discuss future Slow Rolls.
