Public meeting- Sheehan Trails

There will be a public meeting held Monday, March 23rd, 6-8 PM at Creekside School to discuss the single track trails at Sheehan Park.  We've requested this meeting to make sure that all interested parties are heard.  We've run into some unexpected opposition in the form of the High School Cross Country coach and his Booster Club President.  We've already met with them and we're doing everything we possibly can to mitigate those concerns.  We want to be sure we also hear from anyone else in the community who has an interest in the trails.

During this meeting we'll present our proposal, including maps, to show how the trails would integrate into Sheehan Park, opening under-utilized areas to bikers, runners, walkers and other potential users.  We'll also show how this will be done with volunteer labor.  The trails will be planned, created and maintained with no cost the the City of Sun Prairie.

We'd like to encourage anyone who supports the idea of single track trails in Sheehan Park to attend this meeting.  The bigger the showing the more support it shows to the City staff, the Parks, Recreation and Forestry Commission (the group that will make the recommendation to the City Council) and the rest of the community that there is tremendous need and support for the trails.  Please make every effort to attend.  Bring your kids and your neighbors.  These trails will be a huge benefit to our community.

Thanks
