The city has recently agreed to use our switchback option and also gave a promise to look into shortening the timeline on the project. All wins in our book!
But our latest sticking point is a Low Water Crossing that is proposed to get the trail across Walnut Creek, near the location where a bridge had been planned and partially built. The City now plans to demolish the bridge due to flooding concerns. We feel that a Low Water Crossing is NOT a good option because any water flowing in the creek will go over the path. This means any time it rains, the water that flows in the creek (usually for a few days after rainfall and possibly for weeks or a month during wet periods), there might be anywhere from a few inches of water to a foot of water crossing the path. We need your feedback on this.
