CITIZENS OPPORTUNITY FOR TRAIL INPUT

» Posted by on Apr 17, 2014 in Activities

The Parks Department is developing a Trails Wayfinding Master Plan.   The consultant is hosting the event at the Chesapeake Boathouse, in the Oar Room, to receive input from citizens, community leaders, and city employees regarding the conceptual design of trail signs and a wayfinding system.  The consultant will be holding an Open House through April 17 from 1-5pm.  If you have definitive thoughts or ideas that you would like to contribute toward the conceptual design of this system, I would encourage you to stop by and share them with the consultant.

Bicyclists, walkers, runners,skaters, boarders, taxpayers, citizens, if you want to have input into the trails system for Oklahoma City this is a good place to start.  Trails, and sidewalks and parks, will only get developed and maintained in this city if YOU, the citizen user-payers, show interest in having these amenities in Oklahoma City!

Don’t be afraid to look at what the city is doing and putting in your two-cents worth because the City has absolutely no qualms about spending your tax dollars on their pet projects.  Plus look at the circles our City officials revolve in, have you had cocktails or lunch with your Councilperson lately?  No?  Then how does that person, your representative, know how you, a taxpaying voter, feels about the way the city is being operated?

Go to the Chesapeake Boathouse, look at how an area can be developed if the city is motivated to do so, and get involved in the conversation!  Thanks for believing in Oklahoma City and in the process of transparent government!!!
