A meeting to help promote the Triplett Valley Trail Project will be held Monday, Aug. 19, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the First Baptist Church.

Dinner and child care will be provided.

At this meeting, participants will split into groups to work on planning in several key areas.

Trail project volunteers have applied for a $250,000 Recreational Trails Program grant and should know in October if it is awarded.

A planning session facilitated by Jessica Lawrence from Cairn Guidance was held July 15.

Scott Davison shared the history of Daniel Boone Rails to Trails and research on the project to date.

He also shared map renderings of proposed phases of the trail and options in more challenging areas, such as passing over creeks.

A larger group was split into three smaller groups to determine what news would be coming out of Morehead in five years if the Triplett Creek Trail were to be successful.

Groups talked about 5K race opportunities and how health insurance rates would drop and a sense of community would increase.
