Survey Crew to Collect Info on Lake Forest Park's McKinnon Creek Trail

City staff will analyze the trail corridor to determine the most appropriate trail location and construction methods.

This Friday, Signature Surveying will be collecting survey information at the site of the proposed McKinnon Creek Trail in Lake Forest Park.

The City seeks to construct a pedestrian pathway that will link the northeast area of the City with the Town Center along McKinnon Creek. The estimated project cost is $140,000

The location of the proposed trail is from the east end of NE 184th Street east of SR104 to NE 187th Place. Survey information will be collected from the south project limit up to the edge of the right of way where it meets the Lake Forest Park Water District property.

After survey base maps are created, City staff will analyze the trail corridor to determine the most appropriate trail location and construction methods.

The City seeks to construct a pedestrian pathway that will link the northeast area of the City with the Town Center along McKinnon Creek. The estimated project cost is $140,000

For questions about the project, contact city engineer Neil Jensen at (206) 368-5440.

I don't have a problem with parks, trails, etc. BUT! If we are having huge issues with budget, finance, and economy, is now the time to spend 140,000 on this?

N Parker: Seems everything is expensive nowadays, doesn't it?

Has a need been determined? How many people are expected to use this path? What research has been done to warrant this investment of our city's limited financial resources? Have we identified the annual maintenance costs? Have we looked into the cost of policing this area? Will this prove to be a late night party destination for kids? Does this make homes backing up to this greenbelt more susceptable to burglery? Seems as though more analysis is required or if already complete a better job of communicating the facts.
