Current FCRT Advocacy
FCRT's mission states that it is:
Committed to promoting the Clinton River Trail
as a safe and enjoyable recreational destination.
Most of the group's energies go to advocacy, with a clear set
of goals established:
Short term: Safe Crossings
Mid-term: One Trail/Five Cities
Mid-to-long-term: Complete the Remaining Gap (Pontiac)
Long term: World-Class Destination Trail
One of the short-term goals we have been focusing on is the creation of a safe crossing at Orchard Lake Road in Sylvan Lake. Arguably the "weak point" for user safety on the trail, FCRT will soon be celebrating the installation of a High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk, or HAWK beacon. FCRT spearheaded the application of a grant from the UPS foundation that provided the $25,000 in seed money to make the project happen.
If you have any questions about the current advocacy initiatives, or would like to suggest a new one, please attend a FCRT meeting, or send us an email.
