A public outreach meeting to discuss the Southern California Edison Greenway Trail project is set for 5:30pm Tuesday, December 9, at Golden West High School, Portable #24, 1717 N. McAuliff St. in Visalia.
The meeting will inform residents, particularly those who have property adjacent to or in close proximity of the proposed trail, from just north of the Rector Station to its connection with the St. John’s River Trail. The meeting will cover what is being planned in the design of the trail, the requirements of Southern California Edison, proposed amenities, and the timeframe of the improvements.
Design team members attending the meeting will include representatives from SCE, Brian Thorburn, regional manager/local public affairs; Matt Ainley and Craig Hartman of 4Creeks Engineering; and Kay Hutmacher of Sierra Designs Inc. City of Visalia Project Manager Vaughn Melcher will facilitate the discussion.
The trail is about three miles long, and will be an important North-South trail connecting several trail systems in the city. It also will connect to the future Eastside Regional Park facility at the northeast corner of Highway 198 and Road 148. The estimated cost of construction is $3 million.
Use the parking area at the southeast corner of the Golden West High School campus for easy access to Portable #24. For more information, contact Melcher at [email protected].
