Citizens wanted for Pathway committee


Want to serve on Electric City’s Pathway committee?

All you have to do is drop a note off at city hall.

The city council will make a selection of four local citizens to serve, along with city Councilmember Brad Parrish, on an advisory committee regarding matters pertaining to the proposed trail.

Chairing the committee will be Tiffany Quilter of Grant County Health District. A representative of Washington State University’s Rural Community Design Initiative, and a representative from the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance will also be committee members.

At the Jan. 12 council meeting, a committee was proposed to the council, but Councilmember Rich McGuire stated he would be more comfortable if the council would make its selection from among those who volunteered to serve.

The city is seeking a handful of volunteers to serve on the pathway (trail) advisory committee and will make its selection at its regular meeting, March 8. Notices of interest need to be in to the city by March 1.

The proposed trail will eventually extend from Sunbanks Lake Resort to North Dam Park and beyond.

Phase one of the trail will be from Coulee Playland to North Dam Park.

The city has already earmarked $40,000 from its hotel/motel monies for the design, and voted to set aside $400,000 from the same fund for matching money for phase one.

A number of government agencies, along with city officials, met in mid-January to discuss the trail and at least two community meetings are planned for spring to get input from residents.
