Trails Summit Tuesday Night

Have any trails complaints?  Tomorrow night at the Kodiak Island Borough Trails Summit is your chance to let the Borough know what you think about various trails (see poster below for details).  The summit will be in 3 basic parts.  First of all, we'll introduce the trails plan and show you what we did with your input after last year's trail summit when the focus was on the Russian Ridge area.  Then we will open the mike to hear what you want to tell us about various trails around town - have problems with dogs on your favorite hiking trail? is the trail to your favorite fishing hole getting too muddy and degraded to use? stray bullets getting you down while berry picking? - this is your opportunity to let the Borough know about such matters.

The final part of the meeting will focus on the Jack and Lee Lakes area behind Bell's Flats.  We will present the details about the area (zoning and who owns what - current use etc) and then we want to hear what you have to say about the area.  What do you do in this area?  In the next year we will start to write up 'Trail Management Objectives' for the trails in this area and your input is VERY important.

The Summit is scheduled for Tuesday night at 7PM in the high school commons. I hope to see you there!
