Mayor Henry honored for commitment to trails

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry today received the “Outstanding Public Official Award” from the Greenways Foundation of Indiana.

Mayor Henry accepted the award at a luncheon today in Indianapolis.

The Mayor was recognized for his leadership in growing Fort Wayne’s trail network to 70 miles, a commitment to funding future growth of the trail system, the Bike Fort Wayne plan, and the initiation of the free, guided community bike rides, Trek the Trails. Mayor Henry’s efforts also led to the City being honored by the League of American Bicyclists as a 2012 Bicycle Friendly Community.

This is the first year for the Greenways Foundation awards, which recognize communities throughout the state. Fort Wayne volunteer and Greenways Ranger Roger Goodland was honored as an “Outstanding Trail Advocate.”

The Greenways Foundation is a statewide, charitable trust providing leadership and advocacy in the growth and use of Indiana greenways and trails.
