Van Buren County Non-Motorized Summit to Focus on Connectivity

    The Southwest Michigan Planning Commission (SWMPC) and several partners are hosting a Van Buren County Non-Motorized Summit from 7 – 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11th, 2019.  It will take place at the Van Buren Conference Center located at 490 S Paw Paw St, Lawrence, MI 49064.
     This summit is open to the public and is free to attend.  Refreshments will be provided. There will be a brief presentation on non-motorized facilities in Van Buren County and then a work session to gather input on desired facilities and priorities to help develop a vision. Non-motorized facilities include trails or shared use paths, bike lanes and paved shoulders that connect communities. Many communities in Van Buren County have trail systems, such as the Van Buren Trail State Park and the Kal-Haven Trail.
     This free event is funded by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and is part of a larger effort to update the Southwest Michigan Non-Motorized Plan and Bicycling Guide for seven counties (Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Van Buren).  Other event sponsors include the South Haven – Van Buren County Conven-tion and Visitors Bureau, South Haven City, Friends of The Kal-Haven Trail and the South Haven Area Chamber of Commerce.
