We asked the community to help us turn the Nickel Plate railway into a whole new kind of public space by sharing their ideas and suggestions.
Between an online suggestion box, community events, activities and think tanks, and the incredible effort by our local schools, that simple request resulted in an outpouring of support. We asked people to "be bold, be original and be heard," and they were!
These ideas were then categorized, combined and refined to form the overall vision for the trail and determine the specific physical amenities, installations and activity zones it would include.
The Master Plan illustrates what is possible and desired for art, technology, lighting, safety and placemaking.
The Nickel Plate Trail is designed by the community, for the community, and we want to hear your thoughts! Submit your feedback on the Master Plan.
