North Fork Trail Vote


"Write an email or attend a hearing to support the NORTH FORK TRAIL!

On Aug. 26, 2008, at 8:35 a.m., the Placer County Board of Supervisors will be meeting to consider certifying the Final EIR & approving the North Fork Trail along the American River - in the board chambers at 175 Fulweiler, Auburn.

We WANT the Board to do this so we can FINALLY see construction getting underway on this long-awaited new trail. If you can attend the hearing, great! OR please take 2 minutes NOW to write a short email to your supervisor to ask him to approve this new trail. Please!

Here's the email address for the Board of Supervisors:

Subject line: North Fork Trail Project.
[Contact Jim Haagen-Smit if you have any questions at (916) 663-4626.]

Talking points:
  • The trail will be environmentally sound by design.
  • What better way to get folks to appreciate nature than by providing a simple trail to access it.
  • With high gas prices more & more families are looking for affordable ways to recreate near home.
  • A healthier community saves money by dealing with costly health problems associated with obesity.
  • Volunteers helped build trails in the area; the community likes to give back by supporting these kinds of projects."
