Sen. Ananich votes to approve Bluebell Beach-Iron Belle connection

LANSING — Last week, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) issued the following statement after voting to designate funds from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund to connect Bluebell Beach in Genesee Township with the Iron Belle Trail in Flint:

“Bluebell Beach is a longtime favorite spot for families in our community, and by connecting it to Michigan’s famous Iron Belle Trail, many more will be able to walk, run, bike and kayak in this beautiful area. During this difficult time when most of our usual summer activities have been put on pause, folks are finding fun in the great outdoors, reminding us all that our parks and trails are a valuable resource to be maintained, improved and – most importantly – enjoyed.” — G.G.
