Bay Trail Update
February 8, 2006

The colorful, upbeat Richmond Bay Trail New Year Report has been mailed out to about 600 people on TRAC's snail mail list, including elected officials, community and business leaders and key government agency management. Special thanks go the Richmond Community Redevelopment Agency, Richmond Convention and Visitors Bureau and ABAG's Bay Trail Project for funding printing and mailing costs and to Tarrafirma Graphics for designing the report pro bono.


Do not despair if you did not receive the report in the mail. It is available for download at http://www.ci.richmond.ca.us/trac/ along with the new January 2006 Richmond Bay Trail map.


2005 was a very good year for Richmondís Bay Trail. Not only did construction begin on three trail segments totaling 2.7 miles, $500K in new grants and appropriations were obtained for planning and designing three miles of trail during 2006. In addition, 33 new exhibit panels designed during 2005 will be appearing along the trail early this year.


Richmond has 24 miles of completed Bay Trail and 17 miles of gaps remaining in the planned route as shown on a report map highlighting all current Richmond Bay Trail projects. The report describes breakthroughs for planning and design work needed to fill two major gaps and the greatest challenge remaining to fill a gap of almost seven miles between The Plunge and the Point San Pablo Yacht Harbor.
