A binding goal for MRCT is to locate a “River Center” in each of the six counties it serves. The concept for River Centers is to provide a location for residents and visitors to learn about the Mississippi River and its tributaries, gain the skills necessary to access the River by canoes and kayaks and serve as a community classroom for topics that support MRCT’s mission. Dyersburg will be the location of the first such Center.

The initial Concept and Feasibility Plan for the MRCT Trail in Shelby County involves various components that include: any land acquisition/conservation easement needs, right of way considerations, signage, materials, cost analysis, potential economic development, educational materials, political advocacy efforts, new bike lanes, sustainability issues, public safety, community meetings, identification of funding resources for implementation, partner development, marketing, art, urban design and environmental impact studies/permits.
