PHASE 1 Urban Single Track Trail: NEW MAP!
On October 20, 2016, the Pagosa Springs Town Council unanimously approved a motion to budget for the 2017 construction of the revised Phase 1 Urban Single Track Trail. Tony Boone LLC, who was awarded the bid, has constructed an amazing multi loop trail system behind the High School. Check out the map and go ride this super sweet trail!
DUST2, TOPS and the ASD have finalized, approved and signed the Phase 1 maintenance agreement which defines the legal responsibilities of each partner.
PHASE 2 Urban Single Track Trail:
DUST 2 has hired Amy Sharp of Sparrow Trails to apply for a Colorado Parks and Wildlife Non-Motorized Trail grant. The goal of this grant is to hire Tony Boone to lead construction of Phase II trails, to hire Triston Richardson to assist Tony Boone on Phase II trail construction, and to supply signs and tools.
The DUST2 organization proposes to partner with Sparrow Trails, the Town of Pagosa Springs and the Archuleta County to plan, construct, and maintain a single track trail connecting Yamaguchi Park to Reservoir Hill Trail network with a connector trail and trail improvements on Reservoir Hill. The proposed Phase 2 alignment and trail descriptions can be found here.
The proposal is also about the continued long term commitment and relationship between the Town and DUST2.
Because Reservoir Hill trails are a key component in the County’s Parks, Recreation, Open Spaces and Trails (PROST) master plan, DUST2 has sought to partner with the County on Phase 2. Through the PROST application process, DUST2 has requested a 30% grant match from the County.
Thanks to the amazing businesses, organizations and individuals in Pagosa Springs, DUST2 was able to raise $9750.00 in pledge donations before returning to the BOCC to request the remaining funds needed for the 30% grant match. The BOCC voted unanimously to give DUST2 $20,450.00 out of the remaining 1A funds pending the CPW grant being awarded for our project.
We are grateful for all the support and will keep you updated on our progress!
