Steering Committee

A steering committee is a group of local individuals who have experience in the region and contribute to the planning process. 

The anticipation behind the Wabash River Greenway (WRG) is gaining momentum, in no small part, due to the ability of Wabash River Enhancement Corporation (WREC) to form partnerships and alliances with numerous organizations, agencies, institutions and jurisdictions to bring their visionary mission to life.

A Steering Committee has been formed of interested parties who are active within their community and have a vested interest in the development of the WRG. This group will work with the project team to help guide the project, serve as a sounding board for various approach options, and will lend assistance with getting the word out to their constituents in the community. It is intended that members of this group serve as advocates for the project and be knowledgeable in certain areas of the trail and its proposed facilities and amenities. It is likely the group will continue to be a involved after the completion of this Master Plan as the trail is implemented.
