Sustainability Committee

Continue to build upon the initial success of the Trail by developing a long-range plan and defining a shared "vision" for the Trail. This committee will have the primary responsibility for intergovernmental cooperation and multi-jurisdictional agreements, referring specific issues to the other committees (e.g. Trailside Facilities, Rules & Ordinance Development) as necessary. This plan may consider the future growth, safety, and needs of the Trail as well as connecting the Trail to other existing trails within the County. This committee will review, update, and make recommendations on the goals and objectives of the Ozaukee Interurban Trail Advisory Council. The committee will also research, develop and work on fundraising, donations, and grant opportunities to sustain the maintenance, enhancement and expansion of the Trail.
