CARROLL COUNTY BURN BAN LIFTED 9/18/17


 

 

For updates on the Travel Club's trip, Janice is sharing highlights on HISID's Facebook.


HI HIKERS

 

 

The club had a great day for the 2017/2018 kick off stroll around the Island. And as usual, Bob Hilmer opened his house up to the group and cooked the brats for the traditional pot luck lunch. Life is good when you have friends like Bob.

 

Monday the Hensons will lead the hike at Tanyard Creek. This is an annual favorite. A couple years ago we had over 40 hikers on this one. It's about two miles and easy. We'll leave from the Rec Center at 9:00 sharp. Lunch will be at Gusanno's. See you there.

 

And don't forget that the Starlite Trail right here in Holiday Island is super for fall hiking.

HOLIDAY ISLAND CITIZENS FOR INCORPORATION UPDATE

 

The committee and volunteer canvassers continue to collect signatures for the petition to incorporate. We currently have about 62% of the minimum number of required signatures and about 52% of our target number of signatures. We have divided the list of registered voters that still need to be contacted into groups and have volunteers assigned to each group. The plan is to attempt to make personal contact rather than wait for these remaining people to come to us. We anticipate that taking this approach will get us to the required number of signatures relatively quickly. We have continued to answer any questions people may have. If you have questions feel free to call Dan Kees, Wes Stille, Bill Branum, Bill Noonan, Barb Kuhn, Sharl Taylor, Ken Mills, or Al Selleck. We’re all in the Holiday Island phone book.

hi hiking trails master plan

 

Some of you may be interested in taking a look at the Holiday Island Trails Master Plan. About 18 months ago, the Holiday Island Board of Commissioners approached the Holiday Island Hikers to see if they would assist in preparing the plan. Their stated desire for the plan at the time was to explore the possibilities of building hiking trails in the green spaces in Holiday Island. This was in recognition of the fact that hiking and mountain biking is close to the top of the list of amenities people are looking for these days when looking for a place to live and/or retire. As such it was necessary for Holiday Island to provide such an amenity if we are to grow. The HISID BOC created an ad hoc committee made up of mostly HI Hiker members to prepare the plan and as you probably know, we were provided assistance from the National Park Service, have recently been awarded a $24,000 grant from the State, and have built one trail. So we are well on our way to implementing the plan. In the BOC's December 7th meeting, the board approved the plan.

 

Starting in January, we will be needing volunteers to work on the Bobcat trail. The Holiday Island Hikers is also now a 501c3 organization so we are soliciting tax deductible donations to be used as matching funds for building the trail. I can assure you that the Bobcat trail, once built, will be equal to many of the trails that we drive many miles to experience. So this is a project well worth our effort. I look forward to any feedback you can provide on the plan and the projects. And look forward to working with many of you on building the trails.
