Atlanta's Beltline is a huge success and repurposes unused train tracks. Brilliant! https://beltline.org/

Hello Michael, I am one of the facilitators for the Grand Rapids challenge, thanks for sharing. The Atlanta Beltline is an interesting project! During the explore phase of the challenge we want to encourage you to share some insights and experience - do you have any experiences cycling around Grand Rapids that you think would be resolved by a project like this?

Hi Idrees, I’d like to address the same question you posed. The Michigan Street Corridor Plan (https://www.grandrapidsmi.gov/files/assets/public/departments/planning-department/files/master-plan/neighborhood-plans-and-projects/area-specific-plans/michigan-street-corridor-plan.pdf) identified the track that cuts through the Belknap Lookout and Midtown Neighborhoods as well as bordering the south side of Highland Park as an ideal site for a future hiking/biking trail.
