First big step for Prairie View Trail

Email

OLIVIA — A 25-years-long effort to develop a trail linking the Renville County communities of Olivia and Bird Island may now be just a few years from happening.

On a unanimous vote, the Area Transportation Partnership board approved $600,000 in funding for the project, contingent on the local sponsors matching the contribution with $800,000.

The funding is being offered in fiscal year 2018, which gives the trail sponsors time to secure the matching funds.
