Traverse City Forum Recap and Video

From The Grand Vision wesbite, they have a whole page dedicated to Rail in northwest Michigan, check it out.

Roughly 130 people attended the Rail Forum, and there was something of a Grand Vision twist. Instead of listening to a series of experts talk about rail, everyone broke off into groups around large sized Michigan maps and with stickers, rulers & pencils they marked where they live where they’d like to go and where they felt rail lines should go.

Each group then got to show off their map with their ideas about the future of rail to the entire crowd. What is special about this, is that the maps are now going to go to the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to aid in the creation of of a statewide rail transportation plan.
