Overview

CartographThe Trails Committee is dedicated to protecting, preserving and enhancing the unique system of public equestrian and pedestrian trails in the Town of Woodside. The Committee works to improve and expand the existing network of trails and seeks opportunities to develop new trails in appropriate locations as provided for in the General Plan.  Working closely with Town staff, the Committee monitors the condition of public trails to ensure safe use on a year-round basis. The Committee oversees expenditures and makes recommendations for the maintenance, repair and new construction of trails, trail bridges and trail crossings.  The Committee provides a forum for the public to communicate issues and ideas regarding trails and works to promote their safe use and enjoyment by all users.

The Committee advises Town staff and Town Council on all trail-related issues, reviews land divisions, subdivisions and conditional use permits pertaining to trails and makes recommendations to Town staff.

The Trails Committee confers with the Circulation Committee on issues relating to trails and trail user safety.  The Committee confers with the Livestock and Equine Heritage Committee on matters relating to Woodside’s equestrian heritage.

From time to time, the Trails Committee recognizes individuals and groups who make contributions to Woodside’s trails by awarding the Trail Legacy and Trail Appreciation Awards.  The committee also makes nominations to the Town Council for Memorial Trail dedications.
