Community input is a critical part of determining the location of this trail. There are many other factors, from state and federal statute to the responsibility to steward public funds and to meet grant requirements. The Clear Creek Greenway Authority is committed to thinking creatively, with an open mind, to ensure we get as close as possible to "pleasing all the people all the time".
