Graduate students at Cal Poly Pomona are working with the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy and the Watershed Conservation Authority on a trail and open space plan in the East San Gabriel Valley. The project intent is to develop a linked network from Thompson Creek to the San Gabriel River with an emphasis on the Walnut and San Jose creeks. This is envisioned as a piece of making east-west connections with currently disconnected north-south corridors such as the San Gabriel and Los Angeles rivers. Local and potential user interests will hold significant weight in the project analysis and design, and cyclist community feedback will be invaluable:
The project has only just recently started, but with a short timeline ending in July conceptual design will begin soon. This survey will run through February 28 before incorporation into the program process. Your voice is instrumental in shaping and supporting this and associated projects. Please use this opportunity to represent your community and pass the word along.
