What's next for Rockville Trails? At least three things are already in the works.
First and foremost is the preparation of the management plan, which will guide us for years to come. A critical component of the plan is the cultural and natural resource assessments that are being conducted by Nomad Ecology and Solano Archaeological Services. We anticipate that the management plan will be complete by the end of 2013. Public access features such as trails, benches and signage will not be built until the resource mapping is complete.
A committee o f volunteers with experience in public access is helping us develop a vision for public use. They will serve as ambassadors and assist with outreach. Their first task will be to solicit ideas and concerns from the community, local agencies, and organizations. There will be an outreach meeting early in 2013, and we encourage those interested to attend.
Meanwhile, a group of docents with experience at other Solano Land Trust properties will lead tours beginning in spring 2013. At first, tours will include low-impact activities such as hikin g and bird watching. Then we will phase in other types of tours, such as equestrian and mountain biking, as facilities get constructed and parking issues are worked out.
Stay tuned for more information about Rockville Trails!
