We’ve received a grant to Pave the Sandel Legacy Trail
Summer or fall next year, the Sandel Legacy Trail in Sunbury plus other small segments of the trail in the village will be paved. Preservation Parks has been recommended for a $150,000 Recreational Trails Program grant from the Federal Highway Administration. These trail segments are part of the Ohio to Erie Multi-use Trail that — when completed — will stretch from the Ohio River near Cincinnati to Lake Erie near Cleveland.
