Community Meeting For City Trails Planning Announced

Community input is being sought by the City of Sulphur Springs regarding the trails in the city. An open house charette is scheduled from 4 to 6:30 p.m.Thursday, March 28, at Sulphur Springs City Council Chambers.
“We’ve had several charettes for specific parks. This will be for parks’ trails, linking the parks,” Tory Niewiadomski, city community development director said.
Work is under way for a Cross Town Trail linking downtown to Buford and Coleman Parks, thanks to a grant. One step in that process is rebuilding Connally Street. The utility and street work is being done first so that no displacement will occur, the city official said.
Solar lighting on mounted poles is expected to be completed in the next 60 days on the pedestrian trail between Coleman and Peavine Pinion Parks.
The community meeting on March 28 will be used to help devise a plan regarding the trails and parks, which would be utilized to apply for grants, which would be a saving to taxpayers, Niewiadomski said.
MPH Planning representatives will once again be on-hand with maps and paper to formulate plans based on community ideas during the planning session. Ideas regarding how to connect the parks and other assets in other areas of town are welcome as well.
The response and feedback received during the trails charette will be used to determine whether any additional meetings, the community service director said
