Mitchell Shire gives trail in principle support
At its meeting on 22 February, Mitchell Shire Council voted unanimously to give in principle support to the extension of the trail to Kilmore and to advocate on behalf of the Friends as opportunities arise. The council is working on an Off Road Trails Strategy which includes the development of walkways and cycle tracks and the Bendigo-Kilmore rail trail fits nicely into this broader vision.
The Friends acknowledge that the council’s priority for at least the next 18 months is the Goulburn River High Country Rail Trail, but it is fantastic to have the council’s in principle support for the long-term vision. See the Mitchell Shire Council’s web site for the agenda which includes the report about the rail trail that was presented to council (PDF 984 kb).
