The purpose of this forum is to receive community feedback on the Shoal Creek Trail from Fifth to 15th streets. It's a potentially 0.8-mile-long urban trail with stream improvements. We're studying the possibility of a 12-foot wide path and how the path would link to the on-street bicycle and sidewalk network; include amenities and unique features; create a safe, context-sensitive, environmentally sustainable destination, and preserve and improve wildlife habitat.
