Grampians Rail Trail: Shire calls for community to step up and manage facility
The City of Greater Bendigo is seeking feedback on the future development and sustainable development of the O'Keefe Rail Trail between Bendigo and Heathcote.
It is developing a plan, which city strategy and policy coordinator Matthew Kerlin said would guide future projects and works along the trail, as well as strategies to increase use by visitors and residents.
"It will also set out how the city will work with and support community organisations who want to undertake projects and hold events along the trail," Mr Kerlin said.
A draft plan is expected to be released for further feedback early in the new year.
The city has planned meetings along the trail on November 14 and 15.
An online survey will be open for comment until November 30.
Lions Club of Heathcote president Daryl Wallace said the club was "fully behind" any improvements to the trail, as well as the possibility of extending it through to Wallan.
Mr Wallace was hopeful the city would engage with the neighbouring Mitchell Shire Council.
He said the Lions Club of Heathcote was supportive of the O'Keefe Rail Trail.
"It's just another way of getting groups to come to Heathcote and support the local businesses," Mr Wallace said.
The Lions Club of Heathcote's support for the trail had previously included the construction of a shelter, which Mr Wallace said just shy of $30,000.
