There a few things I’d like to update you all on:
1. We will have a CTC workday
next this Saturday, March 26th, at Beaver Creek reservoir (Henley Hornets Trail). We will be checking the trail for any maintenance issues, putting up a few signs, clearing, and investigating the stream crossings. Please meet at the parking lot at 9am. Bring tools if you’d like, and bring friends and family. This will be a great workday for kids as well.
2. The Crozet Community Advisory Council (CCAC) met last night and we have decided that the April CCAC meeting (Thursday, April 21st) will be dedicated to the topic of walking and biking to the local schools. This will be a great meeting to attend if you have any interest in the topic. I will send out more information to the CTC in mid-April. Mark your calendars.
3. We would like to plan a day to begin the lower portion of the Grayrock Ponds access trail. It is very important that we get buy-in and assistance from the Grayrock community. If you live in Grayrock and are interested in helping (or know someone who would like to help), please let me know. We’d like to plan this event for a weekend in mid-May. It will take several workdays to complete, likely spread out over a few months.
Naturally, I’m excited to see them working on the walking to school topics. I’ve tried to work the bureaucracy to encourage walking to school but have been stymied by the bureaucracy, the fear, the fear of liability and the lack of sufficiency. I’m more than glad that the Crozet Trails Crew is working on this.
