As a result of the amount of input received from equestrians during the Ridge to Rivers 10-year Master Plan workshops held in November, an Equestrian Focus Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 9th from 6 - 7:30 PM at the Foothills Learning Center.
The meeting will consist of an open dialogue between equestrians, land managers (including Tom Bobo from the Grossman Company) and a few mountain bikers from the Trail Plan Committee who we have asked to attend. The hope is to discuss and address the primary concerns of equestrians with respect to using the Ridge to Rivers trail system.
The goal of the meeting is to arrive at a handful of strategies that land managers and trail users can implement, to allow for more comfortable horse/biker interaction and improved parking for equestrians - the latter being a challenge that may need to include ACHD officials.
This is an open meeting targeted for equestrians - please feel free to let your constituents know of this opportunity. Please also stress the need to come with a positive attitude toward the process as that always leads to better results.
