Commissioners hope this first step will be finished by the end of the summer.

They say they’re happy this community-driven project has a chance to finally get started.

“This has been a community driven project and a top priority for the last at least five, almost 10 years, and now more than ever we are seeing the importance of trails,” Executive Director Julie Clark said.

Commissioners aren’t sure when the other two projects will start, but hope to have the entire loop completed by next year.
