      New recreational trail for Milan

      Milan is seeing many changes?|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. ??It's going to be close to our current park and it's going to be a 1.5 mile combination trail,?? Onello said. ??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.??

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