Proposed Trail Improvements

Proposed trail improvements include improving existing trails by:
  • Filling sidewalk gaps near trailheads to improve connectivity
  • Improving drainage in low-lying areas
  • Adding signage and other amenities such as benches at trailheads
  • Implementing a 911 emergency wayfinding system
Other trail improvements would include growing the trail system and improving connectivity by:
  • Building new trails in city parks
  • Filling sidewalk gaps near city parks and proposed community recreation centers to encourage walking and biking to parks and recreation areas
  • Building a walking/biking loop around the entire city using existing trails and sidewalks and new trail connectors
Potential City Loop Trail Improvements

Why Trail Improvements?

The Strategic Facility Improvement Plan survey showed 70% of households have used trails in the community and 41% said walking and biking trails were the most important parks and recreation facility to their family. A Trail Use Study completed in 2016 showed that for 95% of trail users, the trails have helped them increase their level of physical activity.

These trail improvements address the No. 3 priority in the Facility Feasibility Study to "improve availability and condition of community parks, trails and neighborhood parks."
