Mill Creek MetroParks to host bikeway open house

CANFIELD, Ohio (WYTV) – Mill Creek MetroParks will be conducting a public open house at the MetroParks Farm on Thursday, May 5 from 6 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to discuss Phase III of the MetroParks Bikeway.

According to a press release sent from the office of Lorilyn Shandor, director of development for Mill Creek MetroParks, the general public is invited to ask questions and share comments about Bikeway Phase III’s planning and implementation efforts. Phase III is the proposed section of bikeway through Green Township that will connect the existing MetroParks Bikeway at Western Reserve Road to Columbiana County near Route 14 in the Village of Washingtonville.

Aerial mapping and plan drawings of the project will be on display, and MetroParks personnel will be on-hand to answer questions from the public. Additionally, organizations with a focus on planning, trail development and bicycling will have informational tables set up and staffed. The open house will not include a formal presentation, but written project information and comment sheets will be provided to those who attend.

For several years now, MetroParks has been working with consultants on the development and implementation of the Bikeway Phase III project. Illustrative mapping with trail alignment, environmental impacts, property identification and preliminary design for the project have been developed. The open house will give the public a chance to view these documents, ask questions and interact with personnel from the MetroParks and local agencies.

The proposed project will not impact any cultural resources, suspect hazardous waste sites or ecological resources. The project will not result in substantial impacts to the environment either individually or cumulatively.

MetroParks Farm is located at 7574 Columbiana-Canfield Road, Canfield, OH 44406.
