Platte River Parkway Meet Previews Enhancement Ideas
Ideas for enhancing the Platte River Parkway will be on display at next Monday’s annual Platte River Parkway Trust meeting. The public is encouraged to come take a look.
“It’s the opportunity for the Platte River Parkway Trust Board to invite the public in to look at what we’ve done in our previous year in 2010 and preview projects we have on the drawing board for 2011 and beyond.”
Platte River Parkway Trust Director, Angela Emery says there are four proposals to be unveiled at the meeting. All would bring greater and safer connectivity to the trail.
A proposed downtown Riverbend Park near Jonah Bank on First street involves a reworking of the bike path and a pedestrian bridge. Another proposal looks to decrease user conflicts in and around Morad park.
“Morad park is one of the busiest parks in town. As you know its the only off leash park in our community. So this project will involve construction of a bypass trail away from the river corridor.”
Also on the drawing board are proposals enhancing access to Wyoming Boulevard on the east and an underpass on the west.
Graphic displays of the projects will be available at the meeting along with Parkway Board Members there to answer questions.
The enhancement proposals will be part of the Trust’s One-Cent fund application to the city of Casper.
The annual meeting is at the Tate Pumphouse Trail Center, 1775 west 1st.
Monday, February, 28th from 4pm to 6:30pm
