St. Clair County Commissioners Looking Ahead To 2019

With 2018 in the books, and the first week of 2019 underway, St. Clair County Administrator Karry Hepting says the County Commissioners got into the swing of it at last night’s organizational meeting, where the chair and vice-chair were appointed as well as appointing members to committees.  Hepting stated that as the County looks at the new year, they will continue to look at a partnership between the Planning Department, Parks and Recreation and the Community Foundation on updating our trails.  She says they are looking at how we can connect our St. Clair County Trail System to the Great Lake to Lake Trail with the two ends points, Port Huron and South Haven.  This would allow avid bikers to bike from Port Huron to South Haven.  She says trails and recreation play such a huge part in tourism and even attracting people to live in our community because people want those amenities.  The tie in would be at the Macomb Orchard Trail, and how we would bring it back through our county, hoping that it would ending at the Fort Gratiot Light Station.
