County Response - Oct 28, 2007

I am more than happy to work with you regarding pathway installations. We can meet and discuss what it takes to facilitate such an endeavor.  

Please consider the following information which merits both the community’s and your attention:  

Providing a pathway is a major capital improvement and among other things it requires strict ADA compliance, appropriate drainage design, utility relocations, and right of way acquisition’s etc.  

When we receive requests for such projects we consider the specific areas need (how many pedestrians are using it) compared to other locations in the community. These other compared locations include school vicinities and community centers etc. We also have to make sure that there is strong community support for these types of improvements.  

Last but not least is fundraising. After the above items are addressed, we then work together to seek funding such as State, Federal or local grants.
