State Rep. Al Cutrona wrong to derail trail
I am deeply disappointed with State Rep. Al Cutrona’s backing of the MetroParks bike trail derailment in our Youngstown area.
This bikeway has been a much-anticipated trail for the families of Green Township and surrounding areas who need this bikeway for the much needed recreation for our residents.
The ongoing fight with these last few property owners is not about eminent domain, it’s about greed. These property owners want to negotiate for more money to acquire this right of way through their land.
I believe the last phase of this MetroParks bikeway is essential for everyone in Mahoning and Columbiana counties. I am sure the completion of this lake-to-river bike trail will be a gift to benefit all of us, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic.
