Tuesday evening FAST stood in front of the park board and explained the case for allowing singletrack trail within Leaders Park. President Chris handled spokesperson duties while a neighborhood representative summarized the concerns and reasons to oppose our project.
In the end the board unanimously approved the FAST plan for the park.

This is not the final hurdle for FAST and Leaders Park. There is still plenty of effort to put in before a shovel hits dirt at the park. But it's not the end of the trail either.
Next step, draw up an agreement between the Parks Department and FAST for use of the park. This will be subject to park board approval.
