The purpose of this survey was to invite the community to help shape the future of the R2R trail system by providing information on how they would like to see the system managed, where they would like to see changes and how to sustain the system for Treasure Valley residents and visitors over the next decade.
The survey is part of a much larger outreach process that involves upcoming public workshops, online input, interviews with community members and formation of a citizen advisory committee to ensure that the future trail plan reflects the ideas of our full community, while continuing to maintain and preserve the beauty, ecosystem and benefits of the Boise Foothills. The R2R trail system is a cooperative partnership between the City of Boise, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, Idaho Department of Fish and Game and Ada County to manage roads and trails in the Boise Foothills.
Two upcoming public workshops in November will further analyze and refine the direction taken with managing the trail system over the next decade. The first workshop will be held at the Boise Depot on Nov. 17, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The second workshop will be held at Riverglen Junior High School on Nov. 19, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 pm. There will also be an on-line opportunity to provide input if unable to attend one of the workshops at www.ridgetorivers.org.
