Erie County Parks Master Plan receives funding
As you read elsewhere, WNYMBA has been tracking the upcoming re-write of the Erie County Parks Master Plan. Last time around (2002-2003), WNYMBA worked hard to get Hunters Creek open to bikes (did you know that bikes were not allowed there until 2002?!) and got into the plan to go-ahead to develop the trail system at Sprague.
We hope to be just as involved this time around, and have equally great results, hopefully opening up a new park for bike access and trail construction. As the article linked below indicates, the county is looking towards passive recreation alternatives, and MTB fits the bill. We have worked well with the county the past 15 years and hope to continue this with next master plan. Read/listen to more about it here:
