Where will the money come from to build it?

Lots of sources over time. Most long trails are built in segments as funding becomes available. Funding for the first ACC segments came from Special Purpose Local Option Sales Taxes and federal and state grants. Possible future sources include private donations; transportation sales taxes; special purpose local option sales taxes; gifts and grants from private businesses, industries and foundations; public fundraisers, and a variety of state and federal programs.
