Please pencil in November 6th for the “Growing the Greenway Plan and Trail” conference which is sponsored by the McLean County Greenways Advisory Committee, the Illinois State Section of the American Planning Association as a citizen planner workshop, and the Normal Public Library. This conference will be especially interesting to planners, planning officials, and council members interested in greenways and trails.
The conference will provide insight into what is happening at the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), sustainable greenway design, education on stream buffers, multi-jurisdictional trail planning, connecting kids with nature, and a multi media presentation of the recently completed McLean County Greenways Plan.
The $20 price of the 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM conference will include lunch.  Davis Lodge is approximately 10½ miles northeast of Normal, IL between I-39 and I-55.  After the conference, there will be an optional walking tour along the Mackinaw River at the nearby Merwin Nature Preserve.
