Etowah River Park Trail Extension

Public Review Comments and City Responses

  1. Any trail extension and land preservation for recreation is essential to mitigate the effect of continued land development for housing. Keep the trees when you develop trails. It allows seniors and children the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful outdoors without the inherently dangerous exposure to sun and heat. 

Best regards.

● The trail extension design calls for clearing the minimal amount of trees and other natural vegetation to install the trail amenities.  The flatness of the land and the nature of trail footprints make it possible to wind the trail route as needed to avoid most trees.

 

  1. I read where you’re looking to expand the trail system along the river and think it will help with the continued appeal-enhancing measures you’re taking in our beautiful county!  Keep up the Good work.
