Trail & Bike Plan

I totally approve of the trails & bike draft concept.
It is needed badly.

Trail & Bike Plan

I think one of the best things that Hays can do to improve its quality of life is add hiking/biking trails, lots of community greenspace (besides just soccer fields) and trees.

I do have one question. Its great that there will be a designated path that will curve around the back side of campus. But why doesn't it continue northward past Hwy 40? As many people already know, there is a natural path there that winds around behind TMP. That path would give many more residents access to the pathway system. I know there are railroad tracks there at Hwy 40, but isn't there any way that the path can cross them? James Alberto

Response:
Thank you for the post. The suggestion for trail access behind TMP is very good and one we are considering for the final plan recommendations.

Development Plan

I am very excited about the prospect of clustered community development and pedestrian/bike friendly travel! Hays is a bit scary for riding a bike, but these changes and additions could really make a difference in traffic levels and the community health and well-being! Jordana LaFantasie

Trail & Bike Plan

I am so happy that someone or some people are finally taking it seriously that cyclists need open space on the road where they can ride SAFELY. I can't tell you how many times I have almost been hit due to the carelessness of a driver. This is absolutely thrilling!!! The plans all look great and it's a wonderful start!  Tori North
