Conditions of the Parks Department
The trail needs to be a firm, formal surface, not a nature or gravel trail
It needs to be ADA compliant
Given its condition, the low water crossing would need to be rebuilt or a new crossing would need to be provided.
Signage is a required item. Language about entering an active golf course, stay on the trail, curfew hours etc.
A split rail fence will be required along one side of the trail in a section near the water crossing to discourage cutting across the course
Part of the trail is proposed within an Electric and Water or Wastewater Easement. The easements may need to be amended to add the trail or if the Departments are agreeable MOU’s will be required.
The Parks Department will have maintenance responsibility for the trail, fence, and signage.
