Lawrence-Topeka trail draws leaders’ interest

April 22, 2006


City commissioners are at least interested in discussing the idea of creating a recreational trail between Lawrence and Topeka.

Lawrence resident Clark Coan brought the idea of a new trail to the City Commission, and commissioners unanimously agreed April 4 to have the city's Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and Bicycle Advisory Board review the idea.

Coan didn't present any specific ideas on where the trail should be built or how it should be funded. Instead he said he wanted the Lawrence City Commission and the Topeka City Council to be made aware of the idea. He plans to ask the Topeka City Council to review the issue this spring. Coan said he hopes a recommendation on the idea can be forwarded to city commissioners for a decision by June 3, which is National Trails Day.
