We need your help! A grant has been identified that we can apply for to reconstruct the walking trail in concrete at an ADA-compliant width of 5 feet. I'm needing to collect local letters of support in order to proceed. It doesn't need to be anything fancy, just something typed or handwritten that indicates one or all of the following in your own words. Additional activities that the trail could be used for if repaired and the cracks and gaps didn't exist (roller skating, inline skating, skateboarding, pushing a stroller, running, etc). This also would contain American Disabilities Act activities (walking with a cane or walker, wheelchair use, etc) Your perceived safety concern due to the large cracks and gaps and the potential for injury that it can cause (trip hazards, sprained ankles, etc). The value that the trail brings to the community as an accessible activity (social impact, community pride, etc) We only found out about this grant last week and will need to submit all letters and grant paperwork on Tuesday of next week. I'm asking that you try to get those letters to me by Monday the 14th. They can be emailed, mailed, or dropped off personally at the High School. Please share this message and encourage participation by individuals and businesses. Thanks -Vance Eden email@example.com
