The Parks and Recreation Department is <br />developing a demonstration fitness trail system on the Government Center <br />Campus titled ~Government Center Demonstration Fitness Trail". The plan calls <br />for a system of inter-connected trail and sidewalks linking all major areas <br />of the complex with over six miles of soft surface trail at plan build-out. <br />The CIP Budget provides $50,000 in funding for the first two-mile segment, to <br />be completed in the fall of 2005. The master planning effort for the trail <br />system involved county volunteers serving on focus groups and participating <br />in design workshops to conceive the plan. Ten county departments serve as a <br />technical advisory committee to assist the department in project development. <br />The Department of Parks and Recreation has partnered with local engineering <br />firms, vendors and the Bird High School and Technical Center students to <br />augment funding by over 100% in goods and services. Upon completion, the <br />project will provide a unique ~wellness" resource for the general public and <br />County employees. <br /> <br />Preparer: Michael S.
