Non-Motorized Strategy

In October of 2007, NEMCOG initiated a one-year planning effort funded by the Michigan Department of Transportation. The purpose was to develop a comprehensive, regional NonMotorized Transportation Plan and Investment Strategy for Alcona, Alpena, Cheboygan, Crawford, Iosco, Montmorency, Ogemaw, Oscoda, Otsego, Presque Isle and Roscommon Counties. The plan prioritizes projects, identifies funding sources and guides investment in the region's non-motorized transportation system.
