Public hearing May 7 for regional trails plan

Consultants have recently completed a two-year study of the Collin County Regional Trail Master Plan, and will present their findings and recommendations during a public hearing in Commissioners Court at 1:30 p.m. Monday, May 7.

The Regional Trail Master Plan includes hike and bike trails, and equestrian trails that connect with local parks, open spaces and lakes.

 is a 75-acre hike/bike trail situated between Princeton and Farmersville,
adjacent to Lake Lavon. The primitive trail, maintained by the Dallas Off-Road
 Bicycle Association, is open for day use only for hiking and off-road bicycling. 

The current plan includes 269 miles of existing and programmed trails throughout Collin County, and recommends another 727 miles of proposed or future trails.

Halff & Associates completed the plan after nearly two years of data collection, meetings and workshops with local municipalities and government agencies, such as the Texas Department of Transportation and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers.

County residents are invited to attend and comment on the plan before it is finalized and adopted. If no changes are required, the Commissioners Court may approve the plan as presented.

Representatives from Halff & Associates will present an overview of the planning process and methodologies used, as well as answer any questions regarding the plan itself.
