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.

 

 

FCRT has produced a brochure intended to educate trail users (and motorists) about the unique properties of the HAWK beacon.

 

Get the brochure - and watch our new video about the HAWK, too.
