National Park Service to work on Trail Plan

National Park Service Representative To Work With Pulaski on Trail Plan

A representative from the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program will work with Town of Pulaski staff on a Trail Planning Exercise slated for Tuesday, March 28, 2017. Ursula Lemanski who is based in the NPS’s Annapolis, Maryland, offices will tour various trail locations in and around Pulaski on the morning of March 28 with select stakeholders.
An open and interactive session to discuss new trails and connectors will be held from 1:30 until 4:00
p.m. that same day at the Pulaski Train Depot. Residents interested in contributing to the process are invited to participate.
This planning session is the result of a grant application to the Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program. The Friends of Peak Creek worked closely with the Town to submit an application. Funding in Virginia was limited this year, but the NPS proposed a day-long session to encourage development of a comprehensive trail plan.
“Trail links in and around town will be our top priority for the day,” noted Nichole Hair, Deputy Town Manager. “We will also consider connectivity to regional systems.”
“Planning and implementing a robust trail system throughout our town will deliver significant gains to our community’s future,” explained Shawn Utt, Town Manager. “We build a healthy population and economy with assets like multi-use trails and green spaces.”
The Train Depot is located at 20 S. Washington Street in downtown Pulaski.
