Trails Plan and Construction Evaluation Consultation
The Foothills Trail System Plan and Phase I construction consultation began on August 24th.
The consultation is estimated to run from now to Summer 2023.
SE Group’s evaluation of the Foothills Trail System Plan and Phase I of construction will run through this fall and winter. SE Group will be working closely with our ecological and cultural evaluation consultant, SWCA, to integrate their findings. Following the evaluation, findings will be compiled and presented in the form of formal recommendations to stakeholders and elected officials in late spring to early summer 2023.
Throughout the consultation process, outreach and engagement with internal (the City) and external (advocacy groups and public comment) stakeholders will occur.
Included in the internal stakeholders are two groups: a technical stakeholder group including key management staff from Public Lands, Engineering and Public Utilities, and a city-wide stakeholder group including representatives from Planning, Transportation, Public Safety, Sustainability, Communication/Engagement, Fire, and SLC911.
Many external stakeholder groups will be included in the consultation’s outreach and engagement, including key advocacy groups such as Save our Foothills and SLC Trails Alliance, as well as a project website and survey for public comment feedback.
