The I&M Canal was once a beautiful and integral part of Utica's commerce, in the 1800's. Since then, it has definitely seen better days. With all the commerce and expansion, things fall to the wayside.
Unfortunately, our canal has become one of those. A large portion of our tourism, biking and hiking is based and revolves around our canal and its attached towpath.
The canal is currently stagnant and covered in green moss and garbage. The businesses and residents of the Village of Utica are asking for your help.
We, the undersigned, call on the State of Illinois and its constituents to clean up and make necessary updates and repairs to the I&M Canal between LaSalle and Ottawa.
The Illinois Michigan Canal Reparations in Utica Illinois petition to State Senator Sue Rezin, State Representative Frank Mautino, Governor Pat Quinn was written by Utica Business Association and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
