Mill Creek Ravine Trail Realignment - South 76 Avenue
Engagement has concluded
Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Email this link2 months agoCLOSED: This brainstormer has concluded.
The Mill Creek Realignment Plan includes connecting two trails - a paved shared-use path located higher up in the ravine and a gravel trail below it. The lower trail has been closed to the public since Summer 2020.GI3 months ago
Reasonable Plan - I think that the Mill Creek Ravine Park would see greater use if the Bike Path had some Lighting (especially in Winter).
How about adding Lighting on the Bike Path?7RitchieLady3 months ago
Repair failed trail to allow for more off-leash area and less congestion/illegally off-leash dogs on the paved path.
Having earlier access to the gravel off-leash trail just south of 76th avenue provides a better transition for dog owners from the off-leash gravel trail on the north side. It is very challenging to share the paved mixed-use path with bikes, pedestrians, runners, etc. while trying to get to the gravel portion to let dogs off-leash, and I can only imagine the frustration of those cyclists/runners navigating more dogs on the paved path as well as an increase in off-leash dogs on the paved path (where they are not permitted) because of the delayed entrance to the off-leash gravel path. The entrance to the gravel path that the City proposes to renaturalize was also one of the more beautiful parts of the path system, I think. Please reconsider and attempt to find a way to rebuild the gravel path instead of closing it.42trail fan3 months ago
People ignoring the fences, signs and warnings are half the problem
Closing at least part of that lower trail should be done to save the bank, but it needs to be secured so people can't keep getting past the fences and signage. I'm sick of people thinking signs and barricades don't apply to them-- you are one of hundreds using the trails and when you go off the trails on foot or with your bike or dog, you're accelerating erosion and destroying the area for others. Erosion will continue to happen, but we don't need to make it worse.1Kate L3 months ago
Please cancel this unnecessary project!
I recognize that the CoE probably settled on this new trail proposal because it seemed like the most cost effective solution. But the most cost effective solution of all would be to NOT SPEND MONEY ON A REDUNDANT TRAIL!!! As many fellow Mill Creek trail users have already pointed out, an identical trail ALREADY EXISTS just a short distance away from the new proposed trail location. I can only hope that, somehow, the professionals involved in this project were simply unaware of the existing off-ramp from the gravel trail to the paved trail, because wow... I mean, this is like me deciding to build a second front door to my house five feet to the left of my existing front door. The City is notorious for these kinds of foolish expenditures, but during a pandemic? When City finances are especially tight? This is just insulting to tax payers. My suggestion would be to cancel this moot project and just leave well enough alone until you can afford a proper solution that actually improves the existing trail system (and maybe fire whoever planned and approved that futile retaining wall). I think the Mill Creek Ravine would be much better served if the money earmarked for this project could be diverted to helping solve the cause of the awful sewer smell further up the trail, north of 76 Ave. Thank you.1Lisa K3 months ago
Invest in a long term solution to keep the lower trail.
Seems like the temporary wall served its temporary purpose. Fix the existing trail. It's a beautiful area and needed part of the off-leash. This area has high user volume all year and it's great to have the extra room for the multiple types of users. Especially as the Richie market and businesses continues to attract more people post-COVID, that second path can help to minimize crowding and ensure everyone is enjoying the trails fully.47
