Attendees heard about the trails to be developed not only in Lawrence County but in the entire Big Sandy/Tug Fork region.

The consensus at the meeting was that now is the time for Lawrence County and ALL of our neighbors to work together on projects to bring visitors to our area because TOURISM IS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT!
