Marion Master Trails Plan:
Marion’s current Master Trails Plan was adopted in 2014 (Amended 2017) and provides an outline for future trails and on-street bikeways with an emphasis on connectivity to community destinations and enhancement of the regional trail network. The Plan focuses on existing conditions, best practices for design, a recommended trail network, plan implementation, and performance measures.
