Rave – Developer works with trails group

So, a week ago I did a rant about a developer that disregarded the concerns of Fort Wayne Trails and plans for a trail to go through a development he was working on.  In my rant, I suggested that the only way to change things was to let our voices be heard.  Apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought that and so much was heard that the developer changed his mind and has reached a compromise for the trail to go through.  You can read all about it here.

Now I don’t know what all forces were at play here, but ultimately things like this are up to “the people”.  Don’t be afraid or discouraged to let your voice be heard!

    ‘Jeff Thomas, meanwhile, suggested that trail supporters might be better served by working with government to install trails along existing or proposed roads, where right of way already exists.’
    Other words, he is saying, put hikers, bikers, nature lovers on trails next to roads, highways, only, not run the trails through the countryside, using abandoned railroad right-of-ways, ie not next to entitled future homeowners of proposed country estates being developed by real estate group with an overly arrogant sense of entitlement. The nerve!
