*******ATTENTION********We need 2 more community corporate sponsors to help fund a $13K pro master plan for federal RTP grant build for phase II - 7 miles of MTB and multi-use trail. Done right, this would make this a top notch regional tourism draw and special place for outdoor recreation, health and wellness, and yet another reason highly specialized labor talent with outdoor recreational passions will have to relocate to New Orleans metro area. Do you know someone you can pass our site and cause on to?
