The Regnart Creek Trail is Approved

At 4:30am this morning, Wed Sept 18th, after hearing from a blockbuster 111 residents (76 supporters, 35 opponents), the city council unanimously agreed to fund the feasibility and full construction of the Regnart Creek trail Option D. They also added a $150,000 fund to be disbursed to residents along the trail that they can use to mitigate the impact of the trail such as planting shrubbery, etc.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude for every single one of you who came together in support, spoke at the council, helped gather signatures, and more. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We couldn't have done it without you!!!

We'll send a more detailed email after a few hours of sleep.

All the best,
Seema and Jennifer

Full text of the motion

I move that Council:

  1. Direct staff to proceed with and allocate $2,100,000 for trail improvement option D of the Regnart Creek Trail design as described in Attachment G of the materials associated with this agenda item 9.
  2. Allocate an additional $150,000 in excess of the cost of the selected option for landscaping or fencing for homes adjoining the trail to address privacy concerns, etc.
  3. Adopt draft Resolution 19-115 amending the FY 2019/2020 Capital Improvement Program budget to increase the budget to perform design and environmental clearance services from $538,000 to $813,000.

This is a huge victory for us.

The trail is approved all the way through construction, so we will not need to come back at do another vote at 100% design completion.
