New trails proposed for Highland Green and Riverside Meadows

Project to be review at municipal planning commission

Plans for new multi-purpose trails that will link areas of the Highland Green and Riverside Meadows neighbourhoods will be discussed by the city Wednesday.

Inspections and licensing manager Erin Stuart said the proposed trails would link up to existing paths to enhance connectivity.

The new project would run one kilometre from 60th Street to 54th Avenue and connect to an existing trail on the north side of Riverside Meadows.

The first portion of the trail starts on 60th Street in Highland Green and runs north to connect with an existing path at the end of Howarth Street Close.

The second portion starts at the east end of the Howarth Street Close trail and continues on the north side of Riverside Meadows to connect to 54th Avenue.

Trails would be located on city-owned property.

Stuart said the project must go to the municipal planning commission for approval because the land is either zoned parks and recreation district, or environmental preserve district.

Some tree removal and grading would be required, but any highly valued trees would be protected and preserved during construction.

The number of trees impacted is unknown at this time, but it is proposed that the trail run where a substantial informal path already exists.
