Town of High River and Rotary Club Prepare for Second Phase of Community Pathways Network Extension Project in 2022

October 13, 2021
High River – As construction season draws to a close, the Town of High River would like to provide an update to the community regarding the Community Pathways Network Extension Project, in partnership with Rotary Club of High River.
Following a site tour completed by Council and the Project Team on September 21, Council provided direction to the Project Team that included repairing current trails, removing stumps, roots and tripping hazards, minimizing impact to the natural environment and minimal leveling and smoothing of the trail.
Remaining onsite work for 2021 is set to finish by the end of October, with manual work tentatively scheduled for October 23. This work will include removing remaining stumps and roots and tidying of the area. Any new pathway work will be postponed until next year. While the trails are currently dusty, residents can expect pathways to compact with the anticipated moisture and usage moving into the winter season.
Future work regarding Phase One or Two of the project will not be initiated until scope of the work is designed and approved by Council. Communications will be released to the community once this design is approved and prior to the work beginning.

About the Community Pathways Network Extension Project
Serving as a partner project between the Town and Rotary Club of High River, the Community Pathways Network Extension Project is an opportunity to utilize and enhance our community’s natural greenspaces. This type of project aligns with and provides value to the identity of High River, while allowing our community to enjoy our natural environment. In conjunction with the Town of High River’s Parks, Trails and Open Space Master Plan, the project will formalize and connect pathways already in use by residents to bridge gaps in the Happy Trails pathway network.
