A few years ago G.A.T.E. (Glasgow Alternative Transportation Endeavor) Plan was created by a group of local citizens with the desire to see infrastructure to support people powered transportation within our City grow. The award winning plan for a system of multi-use trails to encircle our City and connect neighborhoods to downtown has been recognized throughout Kentucky. The City of Glasgow was awarded the first grant in 2014 and a second in 2015 to design and construct the first phases of the plan. But there is much to be done beyond just designing the trails and preparing for the first construction project. We need to think about how the trails will be marketed and presented to the community. We need logos, signage design, social media pages and a litany of other preparations as we attempt to make Glasgow a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly community. In light of that, we need folks with an interest in this infrastructure with creative talents to develop a master plan for the new trails. The City of Glasgow is contemplating the creation of a new Board/Committee to address these issues. If you would like to offer your talents to the City of Glasgow's newest adventure, please contact me at dickdoty@glasgow-ky.com or 270-651-5131 to indicate your interest. We will be in touch with you very soon!
