What’s better than getting on your bike and riding along a gently rippling lake? Or walking along a quiet path buffered from nearby roads? Valley County has a draft plan that would promote pathways like this.
What Is This New Plan to Promote Pathways?
Valley County has a new pathways master plan that, once approved, will guide future planning and development of Valley County. This pathways plan has been updated through collaborative efforts among the cities of McCall, Donnelly and Cascade. It seeks to connect Long Valley communities, complete a pathway around Payette Lake, link neighborhood trails and establish pathway corridors.
Ask Valley County Commissioners to Approve the Plan!
The county commissioners haven’t yet approved this plan. That’s why they need to hear from all of us who value the many benefits of a pathways plan. Consider these reasons for adopting the plan. Then attend next Monday’s public meeting and speak up for the pathways plan.
- Valley County’s economic future depends on the development of tourism and recreation.
- Pathways are good for recreation, health and fitness, education, transportation and quality of life.
- Pathway corridors connect our communities and link us to our mountain trails, lakes and streams.
