Danville trails committee formed

On Monday the Danville City Commission approved the formation of a committee that will investigate and give recommendations on how walking/biking/jogging trails can be incorporated into future city projects.

As someone who regularly bikes, walks, jogs, and “baby strollers” all over downtown Danville, I think this is a great step toward making our community a more friendly and accommodating place to live. I think that public trails are an important “quality of life” asset and I applaud the city commission for their decision on this matter.

My only recommendation would be to expand the mandate of this committee to include recommending proposals to create new trails and link them to the major sidewalks in Danville as well as those in Millennium Park, as opposed to the more narrow existing focus of simply looking for opportunities to enhance trails only when and where a specific city project takes place in the future.
