I support the WOW Trail because it makes good sense for city

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

An open letter to the Laconia City Council:

There has been much conversation regarding how best to invest Downtown TIF funding. I support the plan to make the city more pedestrian friendly and especially support the expansion of the WOW Trail.

The trail is a great way for people to get outside and exercise in a safe environment. I walk my dogs on part of the trail almost every day.

Even more, I believe a completed WOW Trail will be an amenity for our region, showcasing our beautiful lakes to visitors and linking them to different parts of the city in a unique way.

Revitalizing Downtown Laconia begins with bringing people here. Expanding the WOW Trail will help do that. I have committed $5,000 of my own money toward Phase 2 of the WOW Trail because I believe it makes good sense for the city. I am happy and proud to be a supporter of the trail and encourage City Council to invest Downtown TIF funding toward Phase 2 also.
