Directing the City Manager to develop and implement an “Adopt-a-Trail” program within 90 days.

 

WHEREAS, the City has already constructed over 35 miles of trails throughout the City, and plans to continue constructing additional miles of trail; and

 

WHEREAS, the citizens of Kansas City are enjoying the benefits of the citywide trail system; and

 

WHEREAS, the Public Works Department has an Adopt-a-Street program, and the Parks and Recreation Department an Adopt-a-Park program; and

 

WHEREAS, no program currently exists for neighborhoods and civic groups to “adopt” sections of the citywide trail system; and

 

WHEREAS, neighborhood and civic groups have approached the City wanting to volunteer their time and resources to improve and maintain sections of the citywide trail system; and

 

WHEREAS, the City wants to promote a feeling of pride and ownership of the citywide trail system with its connected neighborhoods; and
