What is the Elizabethtown Trail Plan?

This plan will ultimately study how a trail can connect Exit 94 to downtown. The plan will be a document that helps to clearly identify a preferred route, connections to surrounding neighborhoods and businesses, design standards and costs for this trail. This plan is driven by public involvement and provides an opportunity for the Tourism and Convention Bureau and the City to align funding with those priorities identified by the public and stakeholders. The Elizabethtown Trail Plan will identify critical issues, needs, and improvements for this trail.

How long will this plan take to complete? What’s next after this plan?

The Elizabethtown Trail Plan is anticipated to be complete by the end of April 2017. This document will not include design, engineering or construction of the trail. Following this plan, the Tourism & Convention Bureau and City would need to identify potential funding sources for design, engineering and construction.

 How can I be involved?

This plan is dependent upon input from residents, business owners and stakeholders! You can get updates by “following” this website on the right column, follow Elizabethtown Tourism & Convention Bureau on social media or submit your ideas on this website (Submit Ideas).

Two public meetings will also be held throughout the planning process. The first is on February 8th from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at Elizabethtown Tourism & Convention Bureau (1030 N Mulberry St). A second public meeting will be held in late April to review the draft plan.

Can you present this project to my organization so we can give input?

Yes! We have a “meeting in a box” where a representative can attend your organization’s meeting to gain input. This is a great opportunity for local groups, clubs, or even a HOA to get involved! To schedule a Meeting in a Box, contact Sherry Murphy (director@touretown.com) or Ed Poppe (ed.poppe@elizabethtownky.gov).
