Kincaid Singletrack Approved

Last night the Parks & Recreation Commission approved the Kincaid Singletrack Trails Project. Construction will begin next summer to create about 9-miles of sustainable, multi-use, multi-season trails.

This means that we’re going to have to look under a lot of rocks to find sources of funding. There are two grants that are no longer available to us, grants which funded the lion’s share of the STA Trails on the Hillside. If you know of any grant sources or potential donors to the project, please let me know. Our project budget is $200,000, of which we have raised $27,000. We have a long way to go before we can break ground next summer.

I’d like to thank Lee Bolling for providing the vision and inspiration for this project. Without Lee stepping up to plant the seed for the idea, we never would be at this point.

Congratulations everyone!
