Trail Construction Notes
UPDATE: Drawings Revised. Click to enlarge. In 2010 Laguna residents requested a simple 5-foot wide walking trail on a public easement, the resident requested trail requirements are here.

The new Moulton Meadows Trail, TOW Pathway, renamed Smith Trail is 10-feet wide on a 30 degree slope costing $900 per foot (elevated foot-bridge extra). See Agenda Item #15 for February 9 2016,  Council members will vote for approval of public rights-of-way and acquisition of public easements to allow construction to proceed. UPDATE: Council approved additional $30,000 to mitigate parking and traffic due to the trail. Plan approved 5:0.    -LS
