Community Input Opportunities for the Annie & Mary Trail Connectivity Project

Annie and Mary Trail Connectivity Project

The City of Arcata has received a grant from the Caltrans Sustainable Communities Program to begin plans for a new multi-use trail in Arcata. This new project will be known as the Annie and Mary Trail Connectivity Project, which will create a new trail that will connect Sunset Avenue/Larson Park to Valley West and the Aldergrove Industrial Park via West End Road. The grant received includes funding to support public outreach and planning activities to help improve safety on the Sunset Avenue and Giuntoli Lane overpasses and to identify trail alignments and connections to the new trail from neighborhoods, park areas and businesses.

The Annie and Mary Trail Connectivity Project Team includes knowledgeable engineers and planners from the City of Arcata, the Redwood Community Action Agency, TrailPeople and SHN who are committed to ensuring robust public participation throughout the planning process. The project team will work to assess current opportunities and challenges for pedestrians between downtown Arcata, the Valley West neighborhood and Humboldt State University in addition to developing concept design alternatives for a trail and/or on-street facilities for safe pedestrian connectivity between these important community destinations.

The first public workshop regarding this project will be held on Monday, February 4 from 6 to 8 pm at the D Street Neighborhood Center, located at 1301 D Street in Arcata. All interested community members are encouraged to attend and share their input with the Project Team.

Community members who are unable to make the workshop are encouraged to take a project survey to offer their ideas and input which can be found here.
