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

Webinar ID: 161 305 6014​       Passcode: 148489          Telephone: 833 568 8864
 

  • Monday, November 22, 2021  - trail recommendations in the South and East

DATA COLLECTION & TRAIL INVENTORY

 

Thank you for helping us identify existing trails, their uses and conditions, issues and opportunities with the Borough Trails system. You can review comments and contributions made on the Interactive Comment Map or view a Dashboard Summary of the comments.
 

VISION, GOALS & GUIDING PRINCIPLES

The Trails Advisory Commission (TAC) worked collaboratively over multiple meetings with FNSB Staff, the project team, and the public, to develop the vision, goals and guiding principles to guide investments in the recreational trails system and trail program for the 20-year horizon. Read the vision statement written below and view the Vision, Goals & Guiding Principles Report.

The Fairbanks North Star Borough trail system is cherished and essential to our community identity, health and economy; connects our communities to each other and their surrounding wild landscapes through an expansive network; and provides all ages and abilities an unparalleled variety of high-quality experiences for every season.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 25th @ 6:00 


Trails Advisory Commission Work Session to  review and provide input on the many miles of draft trail recommendations for the North and West areas of the FNSB.
