Information Provided at the 1st Public Meeting
On Wednesday, August 19, 2009 the City of Parma hosted the first public meeting to discuss the feasibility of building a multi-purpose trail along the Illuminating Company (CEI) Avon-Juniper High Tension Electrical easement along the southern end of Parma - between W. 130th and Broadview Road.
At the meeting, there was a lot of public participation and the City appreciated hearing the feedback. As expected residents in the most populated section of the proposed trail system were concerned about public access in their backyards.
There are five (5) sections to the proposed project. In each of the five (5) sections URS Cleveland (contracted engineering firm) proposed several possible routes for the trail. After the meeting on August 19th, the City of Parma is clear that in sections 4 and 5, it is not feasible to run the trail through the CEI easement corridor due to the proximity to homes.
The City of Parma will continue to work with URS to determine if there are other potential routes a trail can take with reduced property owner impact, which may include an abbreviated trail plan. Below are the documents provided during the meeting on Wednesday, August 19th.
