SHEEP DRAW TRAIL
Estimated Cost: $1,220,000
Project Begins: 2005/2006
The trail projects will be designed and
constructed in phases. A major factor in determining the sections to
be constructed relates to development in the area. The City is
partnering with developers to leverage the funding provided through
the Quality of Life sales tax. To date over two and one-half miles
of trail have been completed. In 2007, we will be working with
developers to install the sections from Hunters Cove north to "C"
Street and from the Triple Creek Open Space west to 71st Avenue.
