Urban Trails Master Plan up today
Thursday, September 25, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano
A push for positive support of the Urban Trails Master Plan has gathered some steam, at least on Facebook. When the plan was last before City Council Aug. 29, no one spoke in its support. This time, Bike Austin has promised to take to social media to keep supporters updated and coordinate attendance. The plan, which is the last item on today’s rather long agenda, will be taken up some time after 4 p.m. Those who oppose the plan worry about environmental impacts of paved urban trails and what they fear is an unclear public process for trail approvals.
