New recreational trail for Milan

Milan is seeing many changesâ?¦from recently improving its downtown to building a new amphitheater.

City Administrator Jim Onello said in a few months the city will also be replacing downtown sidewalks and creating a recreational trail. â??It's going to be close to our current park and it's going to be a 1.5 mile combination trail,â?? Onello said. â??Part of it is going to be handicapped accessible and the other part is going to run through a little forest area it will be a little more scenic.â??

Onello said the city will also be replacing the sidewalk running from the town square to the school. â??We've wanted to do that for a number of years, and we were able to obtain a grant,â?? Onello said. That grant was awarded by the Missouri Department of Transportation.

The Department of Natural Resource Division for Parks and Recreation awarded the city a grant for the recreational trail.
