The City Council has received several communications about our Steps, Lanes and Paths (SLPs) program, and we are excited to see the out pour of enthusiasm from the community.
First, the City has heard your concerns.
Many of the communications we have received ask City Council to make a formal resolution which would affect both City and individual property rights. Your voices are an important part of this process, and I have asked staff to bring the issues to a City Council meeting in January so it can be fully studied, discussed, and direction can be given to staff.
Second, the City Council cares deeply about our SLPs and have a demonstrated commitment to protecting them.
Third, the City Council has a very clear process for protecting and expanding our SLPs.
Periodically through an inclusive public process the City identifies which of the SLP’s should be developed, improved or repaired. City Council will review a draft of a proposed priority list in a public hearing early next year.
Thank you for expressing your support for our treasured steps, lanes, and paths.
