Lake Villa Township trustees recently approved a resolution seeking a state grant of $160,000 to help pay for an extension of a multiuse trail from Oakland Elementary School through Lakes Community High School to Gelden Road. The half-mile trail would cost about $220,000. It would tie in with the resurfacing of Gelden Road that will allow access to the Hastings Lake Forest Preserve. Township officials hope to learn the status of the Safe Routes to School Grant this summer. If the grant is secured, the trail likely would be installed in 2015.
