Cost Change

Cost change due to the addition of FY29 and FY30 to this ongoing project, and additional funding required to match federal grants to renovate existing trails like Sligo Creek and Northwest Branch Trails with cost increases related to this new work.

Justification

Connectors, safety improvements, signage, and amenities increase trail usage for recreation and promote walking and biking as alternatives to vehicular transportation. In park user surveys, hiking and biking on trails is the most frequent recreation activity reported. Biking and walking paths top respondents' lists of desired facilities or greatest facility shortages. 2016 Countywide Park Trails Plan, 2017 Park, Recreation, and Open Space Plan.
