Proposed legislation to better coordinate recreational trail development, especially in eastern Kentucky coalfields, is moving through the General Assembly.
A proposal to create the Kentucky Mountain Regional Recreation Authority passed the full House Monday.
Debby Spencer is president of a Bowling Green-based development firm called We Make Things Happen. She said 20 county judges have signed on to the concept of the recreation authority. In addition to trail development, Spencer said this entity could work to police, market, and maintain ATV, horseback riding, cycling, and hiking trails.
