Perham backs ‘master plan’ for possible new trail

Email News Alerts

Perham city councilors have gotten behind a plan to create a recreational trail from Perham to Pelican Rapids, unanimously agreeing at a meeting last week to contribute $13,000 toward the project’s initial planning phase.


The money will help pay for a study and proposed master plan for the trail, to be conducted and completed by professional consultants, with input from the public along the way.
