Public Notice

The Darke County Park District is proceeding with the construction of Phase VI of the Tecumseh Multi-Use Trail which will eventually cross Darke County from the Village of Bradford through the City of Greenville and on to the Village of Union City, Ohio.  The potential for trail linkages to the largest paved regional network of trails in the United States through Miami County to the East; and to the Cardinal Greenway Trail Project in Indiana to the West was one impetus for the Park District to pursue this project for the good of the citizens of Darke County.  Phase VI of the Tecumseh Trail Project is a joint project with the City Of Greenville through an Ohio Department of Natural Resources Clean Ohio Trail Fund grant and will take the trail from the end of the already finished section of the Greenville Creek Trail at the Greenville City Park entrance on East Main Street in Greenville through the Greenville City Park, onto Darke County Park District Land at Prairie Ridge Meadow on Wilson Drive, across North Broadway and will follow unused rail property to the Corporation Limit of the City of Greenville near the intersection of that rail property with St. Rt. 49 North.  The Park District is requesting public comment concerning this project for at least the next 14 days or until January 31, 2018. More information or maps can be obtained and comments may be made in writing to the Darke County Park District at its offices at 4267 State Route 502 W., PO Box 801, Greenville, OH  45331 or through their website at www.darkecountyparks.org and go to the “Connect With Us” page to “Contact Us”.
