The Silver Comet Trail is again, in serious need of help.
I'm going to start an assessment and create a list of target projects.
By definition, the assessment is the top priority.
The assessment will identify what needs attention on the trail.
Everyone can help by contributing to the assessment.

I need help and the help can come in several ways:

Take ownership of a function or project.
This should be a 1 year comittment to help define scope, requirements and organize a team function or project.

Recruit other trail users.
Spreading the 'word' (concept) that you can make a difference on our trails.
Example:
This could be a church or Boy Scout group that adopt a trail project.

Create a scheduled MeetUp group and meeting place.

T-shirt, hats with volunteer and/or team logo.
Suggest a logo concept or design.
Posters or banners for bike shops, trail heads, other popular cycle spots.

Help with the assessment.
Identify what needs to be fixed/improved first.

Help raise funds and awareness, find some supporters and sponsors.
(Every penny goes directly into trail work).

Help grow this concept and approach, even criticism contributes to the process.

Need another trail-blower operator willing to make a year commitment, not someone who thinks it sounds like fun. It's not; it's hard work.

We can work in Paulding and Polk County, but Cobb has always declined any 'help'. But having someone that tables issues and a point-of-contact with Cobb would be a good idea, IMO.
