Congratulations to the 2023 Grant Award Recipients:

City of Marion - We are applying for this grant to complete the park, and make improvements along the edge of the water. We are proposing to extend the concrete from the dam and create a 6-foot winding path/sidewalk. It will extend 350' through the park, terminating at another gazebo or open shelter.

City of Waupaca - The City of Waupaca is requesting assistance from the Greenway Commission to help fund 34 vehicular wayfinding and pedestrian trail wayfinding signs in the Waupaca area that explicitly help transportation system users navigate to amenities that include canoe launches, public parks, water access points, and trailheads.
City of New London - Connecting the State Trail to the City of New London Trail System and downtown New London, WI.

The vision of the Waupaca County Bicycle/Pedestrian Plan is “an

interconnected network of intra- and inter-community linkages developed;
ultimately enabling bicyclists and pedestrians to travel safely and conveniently
to destinations within and beyond Waupaca County.”

The primary charge of the Greenways Commission is to use the Bike\PED plan as a guiding document to administer grants. These grants are intended to help finance projects that further the objectives of the overall plan.

Since trips taken on foot or by bicycle are often for the dual purpose of transportation and recreation in Waupaca County, the potential for creating a countywide network of both on- and off-road accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians is important. With opportunities to promote bike touring and extended hiking trips, as the system grows, it will not only serve the needs of its residents but will also prove to be an effective tool in attracting additional tourism dollars. This belief is reflected not only in the overall vision, but also in the goals and objectives and specific strategies and implementation actions that are proposed in the plan.
