Good Neighbor Trail Advisory Committee


On Monday, March 6, 2000, City Council appointed the following individuals to serve on the twelve (12) member "Good Neighbor Trail Advisory Committee". In 2003, City Council updated the Committee membership to include a trail enthusiast and reduced the number of committee members to ten. This Committee is a sub-committee of the City's Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. The purpose of the Committee is to assist in the implementation of the Good Neighbor Trail Management Plan, which includes annual surveying of the site for exotic pest vegetation, animals, natural resources-ecosystem (including a specimen tree survey), and an initial historic resource survey.

It is envisioned that the Committee will also assist in restoration plan development and design planning for the Good Neighbor Trail Head facilities and hiking and nature trails. The Good Neighbor Trail Advisory Committee will submit its recommendations to the Parks and Recreation Board for consideration and subsequent approval by City Council. It is anticipated that this Committee will serve through the complete implementation of the Good Neighbor Trail to Russell Street Station Management Plan.
