Contact the King George Board of Supervisors

Here is the suggested text for your message to them:

The Friends of the DRHT are trying to build a free, public, recreational interconnected infrastructure in KG that does not revolve around cars. The Friends of the DRHT have worked and waited for over 6 years to move the trail to be a Part of Caledon state park. There is only so much that a purely volunteer organization can do, and so we are coming to you, the KG Board of Supervisors and asking that you endorse the efforts of the Friends of the DRHT immediately so that it can be made a state park and a part of Caledon.

Next DRHT Board Meetings

Friday, May 16 and June 20 at 6 PM at the 605 Joe L. Williams Multipurpose Area
