A steering committee has been formed to help with the Winamac Community Parkway concept recently approved by the town board.
The Winamac Community Parkway Project will consist of a 1.1-mile-long parkway and will provide an open space improvement opportunity, connecting the walking/biking Panhandle Pathway Trail via a downtown hub designed for relaxation and recreation for residents and visitors.
The Town of Winamac has submitted a request for $150,000 in funding from the Safe Routes to School program administered by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and an application for $250,000 in funding from the Safe Routes to School program administered by INDOT. The results of that application won’t be known until late summer.
The volunteers working on this project will be using donated materials and labor to make this project a reality. Monetary donations are being accepted to help develop the parkway. For more information on how you can donate funds, call Dave Bennett at (574) 946-3343.
