Trail Users: We Still Need Your Help!
The Steamboat Springs Trails Alliance made great progress when the accommodations tax committee recommended to City Council that its trails proposal receive the majority of tax funding. We encourage all our fans to attend the next City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 21, at 5 p.m. in Centennial Hall to show support for making Steamboat Springs a world-class trails mecca!
The Steamboat Springs Trail Alliance is nearing the end of a thorough, almost year-long process that aims to fund a wide range of trails and trail amenities which have been discussed for years. RCR and its members know the great potential trails have to bring visitors to town. The Accommodations Tax Committee agrees, and they have recommended to City Council that the trails proposal receive the majority of tax funding. However, we’re not counting our trails before they’re forged, so to speak. At this point, the committee’s decision is only a recommendation.
We’ve got the support of the Accommodations Tax Committee (read here); we’ve got the support of the Steamboat Pilot editorial department TWICE (read here and here); we’ve got the support of the community as evident through the Pilot’s polls (read here). Please join us at next Tuesday’s City Council meeting to help remind our city’s leaders that the future of Steamboat Springs’ summer tourism depends upon trail users.
To unite bicyclists in Steamboat Springs and Routt County through trails, roads, and pathways; education; and events with the goal of creating a fun, healthy, and safe bicycle friendly community.
