He expressed that residents are becoming reluctant to use the trail due to <br />some bikers riding too fast and creating dangerous situations for walkers, children, and other <br />bikers. <br />Jane Clark, 9871 Lincoln Ave, suggested that the Trails and Greenways Advisory Committee <br />meeting next week would be an appropriate place to share these concerns. <br /> <br />*Crawford arrived at 5:33. <br /> <br />The Board stated that they would like to discuss this issue in further detail. Suggestions were <br />made to hold bike trail and traffic meetings with bike advocacy groups and to exchange ideas <br />with connecting cities. The Board asked Staff to obtain a report of how often police monitor <br />the trail. Discussion of recommendations or policies to set will take place at the September <br />meeting. <br /> <br />Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan- <br />Laura Peters and Brett Douglas, Genus Landscape Architects, presented an overview of the <br />completed plan including project objectives and study results. Staff commented that many of <br />the plan’s suggestions will be included in the City’s Capital Improvement Plan. <br /> <br />Jane Clark, 9871 Lincoln Ave., noted that additional plant species, besides those listed on the <br />plan, were abundant in the Greenbelt area. She suggested that vegetation management be done <br />during colder weather months and did not recommend placement of bird houses due to <br />necessary constant monitoring, while cavity nests are actually preferred. <br /> <br />
