On Thursday, Dec. 8, Lake County will host a public meeting for the North Lake Trail Phase 3 Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. The Project’s Overview will be presented from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the Cadwell Community Center (1 Cassady Street, Umatilla).
The study evaluates alternatives for phase 3 of the North Lake Trail, a segment of the river that leads to Hills Regional Trail. This study focuses specifically on the trail segment from E. Altoona Road to State Road 40, which is approximately 16 miles in length. This trail is located within unincorporated Lake County, the Ocala National Forest, Altoona, and Astor Park.
The meeting will be held as an open house with no formal presentation. Participants may review project information, provide comments, and discuss the project with the study team at any time throughout the meeting. Information about nearby projects (such as the North Lake Trail design project from E. Collins Street to E. Altoona Road in Umatilla) will also be available for review. Meeting information and displays will be available for review on the project website (www.NorthLakeTrail.com/Outreach) on December 5.
