COMPREHENSIVE RECREATIONAL TRAILS PLAN UPDATE
The Fairbanks North Star Borough is developing a new Recreational Trails Plan that will be the primary decision-making tool guiding FNSB and its partners to prioritize the allocation of available resources to local trails.
WE NEED YOU
FUTURE FNSB TRAILS
What Trail Recommendations Do You Prioritize?
Join the October and November TAC Meetings to review many miles of trail recommendations on maps & provide feedback!
For a successful update to the Recreational Trails Plan, we need your knowledge and input! The Trails Advisory Commission (TAC) is the Plan's steering committee and we encourage you to participate at upcoming Commission meetings, connect with the project team, and engage through the Interactive Comment Mapping portal.
PRIORITY TRAIL IDENTIFICATION
Now that we understand more about trails you use in the Borough and what is important to the community, we need you to help us make decisions. The Borough has limited resources and we need to know what trails you prioritize to allocate those resources to.
Join us at two upcoming TAC Work Sessions to review and discuss many miles of trail recommendations on maps and help us identify priorities and refine the recommendations:
Monday, October 25, 2021 @ 6:00 PM via Zoom - review trail recommendations in the North and West

VISION, GOALS & GUIDING PRINCIPLES
