Trail Town Trial Run set for warmer weather this year!
Trial run for the Paddle Trail planned for warmer weather. Trail Towns initiative had waited on insurance questions being cleared up and had waited to see that new County Judge Executive were behind Trail Towns. 'They are!' Ellen Zornes says. CAUD still plans to tear down old water plant and make a park and kayak/canoe launch area
By Ellen Zornes
Co-chair, Trail Towns Action Committee
Although the fall trial run had to be postponed due to insurance questions, it was not forgotten and will take place at a date to be determined in late spring.
It will be held on Russell Creek beginning in town and ending at Pelham Branch. Our committees are getting geared up again and with warmer weather approaching, we'll all be ready to get back on track.
We were also waiting until our new CJE and Mayor were in office to be sure the support was still there - it is!
Mayor Hardwick has already cleared up the insurance question and CJE Stephens is picking up where CJE Melton left off in working with Lenny Stone and the CAUD Board in pursuing the grant for the old water treatment plant to be torn down and that area of Water Works Road to be a park and canoe/kayak launch area.
CJE Melton had already upgraded a steep launch area behind NAPA and the new treatment plant so it is now much easier and safer for paddlers to use.
We are now on the state list to be certified this year and once that happens we can more easily add other trails such as biking, hiking, horse back riding and possibly ATV. We appreciate the support and encouragement of so many to be sure that our Trail Town efforts continued.
We are also looking forward to warmer weather and getting the umbrellas put back in picnic tables in Fountain Square and seeing people enjoying the sunshine and fresh air as they eat lunch and just visit with one another.
