Friends of The Legacy Trail presented a check for $250,000 to the county at the 1/25/22 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners. Of this amount, $200,000 is from regular donations to FLT, including $100,000 from the Square Foot Campaign.  This money will be used as part of a matching fund for a grant application to build parallel walking paths on sections of the trail. An additional $50,000 was a donation from Dr. Herbert Silverstein to fund a rest stop shelter on the trail extension. Thank you, Dr. Silverstein! And a big Thank You to all of our donors who have helped to make projects like this possible!
