BUILD Trail Nov 15, 9am-noon

Displaying Spruce_Street_Connection.jpg
Hello PT Trail Crew! An amazing thing happened last month... after 8 years on the "Missing Links List,"  the City purchased an easement from an adjacent property owner that now allows the Spruce Street Non-Motorized Trail Connection from Cedar to Center Streets.  TaaaDaaaa!!!  This connection completes an integral non-motorized, north-south valley route from Port Townsend Bay to Fort Worden and North Beach. See the attached map for location details.

At the last Non-Motorized Transportation Advisory Board meeting (last Thursday), we learned that the 100-foot corridor has now been surveyed, and that the City will be providing materials for a wooden fence between the adjacent landowner's property and the easement. We do not have the fence materials yet (trail volunteers will be needed to build and install the fence), but the City has given us permission to clear the easement of shrubs and other vegetation, as needed for clear passage. 

Thus, we are announcing a Trail Work Day, this Saturday, November 15th, from 9 am to Noon at the Spruce Street Connection between Cedar and Center Streets (near Blue Heron School). We will be clearing shrubs and vegetation, so please bring hand tools (clippers, loppers, folding saws, rakes, shovels, etc.), work gloves, and dress for the weather, as we work rain or shine. There will be hot beverages and cookies for all volunteers. So grab some tools and join us for this historic occasion!
(Rumor has it that quite a few people have been using the easement already, as they were spotted when it was being surveyed. This enthusiastic response reinforces how important this connection was to completing the connectivity of our local trails system.)
