Merrill is one step closer to having the River Bend Trail.
On Friday, November 25, the City of Merrill will be closing on the land being purchased from Canadian National Railroad for the purpose of constructing the River Bend Trail. The River District Development Foundation, a group of volunteers, raised the funds necessary to purchase the property through their capital campaign drive that kicked off in April. The recreational trail will be owned by the City of Merrill and the volunteers will continue to raise funds for the actual construction of the trail.
The closing is scheduled for 10:00 am at the Merrill City Hall.
