Public multi-use trails systems have endless benefits to our communities. But the path to get to a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new trail can be fraught with challenges. For many trails, the Local Government along with their design team must traverse a sweeping tapestry of planning obstacles, design decisions, federal funding considerations, tight schedules, and even political ramifications.

This session will provide examples and encourage discussions on a multitude of common challenges for trails in Central Texas, many of which were faced (and overcome) in one very important mile of the Bushy Creek Regional Trail in Williamson County.

Learning Objectives:

  • Outline and Identify numerous ramifications faced by Local Government when accepting Federal Trail Funding.
  • Identify design-thinking strategies for place-based trail planning.
  • Summarize and discuss common construction, environmental and political challenges when developing multi-use trails in Central Texas.

Learning objective examples will be provided throughout the presentation of a current and relevant case-study from presenter(s), open discussion format of Presenter’s and other Learner’s examples, and a final open discussion on the implications of these objectives in Learner’s practice, agency or policy making goals.
