The final round of open houses for the county’s Non-Motorized Trails Plan is underway.

South Whidbey’s open house, located at the Freeland Library, is slated for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30.

The open houses were scheduled to help Island County develop an update to its 2006 Non-Motorized Trails Plan. Pulling suggestions and preferences from the audience, county workers will devise an update listing priorities for future projects aimed at “outdoor recreation and active transportation.”

The county hopes to hear from runners, cyclists, equestrians, and anglers.

Those who can’t attend but would like to pitch ideas can email b.wood@co.island.wa.us for consideration. Visit the project website at http://tinyurl.com/trailplanupdate for more information.
