The Kittitas County Park and Recreation District No. 1 is holding the first of several public meetings regarding the Towns to Teanaway Corridor (TTC) Project. The TTC is an effort to develop a non-motorized trail system that connects Ronald, Roslyn and Cle Elum providing access from each to the Teanaway Community Forest via Cle Elum Ridge, with trailheads and signed routes originating in each community.
This public meeting will focus on the master plan and design portion of the project. The public is invited and encouraged to attend – we want input from the community! Your suggestions and concerns are important to us.
The goal for public input at this meeting includes the discussion of site conditions, project goals, uses and facilities to be considered in the plan, and the trail types to be included.
When: Wednesday, August 30, 2017 at 6:30pm. Meeting concludes at 9:00pm.
Where: Putnam Centennial Center, 719 East Third Street, Cle Elum, WA, 98922 – main function hall.
Cookies and coffee provided!
Preliminary Project Goals:
- Create a world-class non-motorized trail system providing trail experiences for all abilities and fitness levels
- Develop well constructed, sustainable and low-maintenance trails
- Promote environmental stewardship
- Create a recreational corridor between the towns of Roslyn, Ronald and Cle Elum and the Teanaway Community Forest
- Partner with private landowners to ensure compatibility with the plan and possibly enhance access to the trail system
- Access to viewpoints at the top of Cle Elum Ridge
- Create a volunteer based trail network support group
- Increase the visibility of the trail system
Creating a recreational corridor to connect these communities to the Teanaway Community Forest is an important undertaking that will benefit the people, economy and wildlife of the region for generations to come.
The funding for the master plan and design portion of the project has been secured through grants and private donations from the community. Thank you!
