City of Osawatomie Community Forum for the Charging Forward Project and Flint Hills Trail State Park Achievements Celebration
October 29 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm CDT
The City of Osawatomie, KS will be hosting their first public Community Forum for its electric vehicle and charging station project, “Charging Forward.”
Members of the public are encouraged to attend the forum, which begins at 9am, to learn more about the project and its goals, and to ask questions one-on-one with City staff and representatives from MEC.
Following the forum, the City invites the public and guests to gather at the Mile Zero trailhead (located at 1400 South Street) to celebrate the achievements of the Flint Hills Trail State Park and enjoy appearances from community and trail partners. The program features representatives from the State of Kansas, Federal Highway Administration, Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, and more who will remark on the Federal Highway Administration’s Environmental Excellence Award and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s RAISE grant award.
At 10:30am cyclists will depart for Ottawa, Kansas and enjoy a complimentary lunch at Ottawa’s Legacy Square Park before returning to Osawatomie and ending the afternoon.
Members of the public are welcome to attend the day’s festivities beginning with the Community Forum at 9:00am at 545 Main Street. The “there and back again” trail ride is also open to all, and is a self-paced ride. Riders are expected to support themselves and know their limits and abilities. Ottawa Bike and Trail, lunch sponsor and proud supporter of Kansas trails, ask that riders please RSVP to help ensure an accurate headcount for lunch.
