We’re excited and proud to be a recipient of the ExtremeTerrain’s Clean Trail Initiative Program. We will be using the grant to purchase a new electric pole saw to continue making improvements to the Ruby Jack and Frisco Trails. Thanks, ExtremeTerrain.

We are very excited to announce we have been selected as a 2022 AARP Community Challenge Grant Recipient, one of only 4 in the state of Missouri!

The AARP grant will provide the needed funds to install an ADA compliant concrete ramp on the Frisco Greenway Trail, on the south side of Fountain Road, in Webb City. This will make the trail access and road crossing safer, whether you’re on foot or bike, or using an assistive device. We don’t have a certain start date yet, but it will be completed by the end of November.
