We need your help

Phase II of our project which is a part of this plan is experiencing strong pressure from some residents living in the Stuckagain Heights neighborhood. Although the Community Council voted unanimously last spring in favor of our project and issued a resolution of support, some residents have arrived late to the process and are raising concerns about increased park use and wildlife.

It is important to note that early in our planning process we met with Fish and Game biologists to seek their input on our project. Their advice to us was simple: stay away from the creek and berry patches. Based on their concerns about maintaining a wildlife buffer, we eliminated two trails that would come close to Campbell Creek.

Please try to come to the upcoming meetings to support the trails. If we don’t show up in numbers, the decision-makers will inclined to side with a small but vocal minority. At the very minimum, please provide written comment by April 29th at Parks & Rec's site.

Monday April 6th: FNBP User Group Meeting 6:20 p.m. at the Campbell Creek Science Center

Thursday, May 14th: Parks & Recreation Commission Meeting, 6:00 p.m. at the Spenard Rec Center

Thank you very much for your trail advocacy.
