Several months ago, neighbors traveling along Arroyo Seco may have noticed stakes inthe ground marking off the proposed location of benches and dog waste disposal stations for the Arroyo Seco “Trail” project with the city’s Neighborhood Partnering Program.

The Arroyo "Trail" project will include important contributions from both the city and neighborhood volunteers. The city will install a demarcated pedestrian and bike “lane” on the roadway closest to the greenbelt along both the northbound and southbound streets of Arroyo Seco. The lanes will be separated from vehicle traffic by small traffic bumps called “buttons”. Neighborhood volunteers will install 12 benches and 7 dog waste disposal stations at points all along the greenbelt.

Visit our new page, Arroyo Trail, to follow along as we Blog about the process and learn how you can participate in this exciting endeavor.
