A Resolution to Request the Commonwealth Transportation Board to Establish a Project for Acquisition of Property for a Pedestrian and Bicycle Trail

Topic Description:

The Parks & Recreation Department is applying for a Transportation Enhancement grant to provide funds to purchase land to extend the existing Warrenton Branch Greenway bicycle/pedestrian trail. A portion of the property to be acquired for this extension is being donated by the owner.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Conduct a public hearing and consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The value of the land donated for this bicycle/pedestrian trail will offset the local match required.  Funding for maintenance required after completion of the trail will be identified in the appropriate fiscal year’s departmental operating budget.  It is estimated maintenance costs will be approximately $2,000 per year for bushhogging, erosion repairs, etc.
