[ARCHIVED] Public Involvement Meeting for the Glacial Drumlin Trail Extension

Bike Path

Public Involvement Meeting for the Glacial Drumlin Trail Extension Planned for

July 30th

Village of Cottage Grove, is in the process of developing plans for the expansion of the Glacial Drumlin

Trail between Vilas Road and Main Street in the Village of Cottage Grove, Dane County

The proposed project will consist of extending the Glacial Drumlin trail along a proposed alignment of

the multi-use path that will route users westerly along Clark Street from the intersection with S. Main

Street (at the DNR trailhead) to a crossing of Bass Street, through a part of Fireman’s Park (a Section 4(f)

resource), crossing Grove Street and continuing through Phoebe Bakken Park (a Section 4(f) resource),

to a future crossing of Vilas Road to connect with the planned Glacial Drumlin extension continuing to

Madison. The Village has other planned improvements along Clark Street and Grove Street that are not

included with this project. Construction is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2021.

A Public Involvement Meeting will be held regarding this trail extension project. The meeting will be

held on Thursday, July 30th from 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM. Due to the safety of the public, the

project team has determined to host this meeting virtually via Zoom by entering the meeting

ID 946 8898 9335. A short presentation, which includes a basic overview of project concepts, will

begin at 6:15PM. Representatives of the Village of Cottage Grove and project design staff will be

available before and after the presentation to answer questions, explain exhibits, and provide additional

information regarding the project. All community members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Following the meeting the meeting presentation, exhibits, and comment form will be posted on the

Village’s website

The Glacial Drumlin Trail, Fireman’s Park, and Phoebe Bakken are either adjacent to or within the project

limits and considered public park areas [Section 4(f) properties]. Right of way and temporary easements

how the project impacts these resources. Persons with a concern for or knowledge about historic

buildings and structures and archaeological sites are encouraged to attend this meeting or provide
