State trail, welcome signs on Promotion and Recreation agenda

kewaunee-county-logoMountain bikes on the Ahnapee State Trail and “Welcome to Kewaunee County signs” are among the issues for the county Promotion and Recreation Committee when it meets Tuesday evening.

The posted agenda calls for discussion of the allowed uses of the trail by mountain bikes. Last month the committee talked about the possibility of allowing all-terrain vehicles on the Ahnapee Trail but held off action until county officials get a response regarding what kind of vehicles are allowed on the former railroad bed under the grants used to create the trail.

Committee members also plan to discuss progress toward replacing the welcome signs along state highways 29 and 54 at the county line. The county has also been exploring a possible new sign along Wisconsin 42 at the former Dominion nuclear plant property.

The committee may hear an update from Promotions and Recreation Director Dave Myers regarding a proposal to repair or replace the roofs on park shelter buildings around the county. Supervisor Douglas Doell reported at the December meeting that most shelter roofs are in need of maintenance. Myers said he was working on a capital improvements plan for the department.

Other items for discussion are the rental price to be charged the Luxemburg-Casco FFA Horseshow for use of the county horse arena, and progress toward developing a No Wake Zone Ordinance for East Alaska Lake.

The Promotions & Recreation Committee is scheduled to meet at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Conference Room at the Kewaunee County Highway Department, E4280 County F, Kewaunee.
