Langley trail system to be explored

Thursday meeting step toward goal

Hiking in and around Langley will be discussed Thursday as a step toward developing a trails plan and a possible network of trails.

The town meeting, “More and Better Trails,” is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., May 17 at Langley United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall.

One of the goals of Langley’s Comprehensive Plan is improving trails throughout the city, said Kelsey Loch, city assistant planner.

The Parks and Open Space Committee, a group of citizens, is trying to make progress on these goals, she said.

“The goal of this meeting to discover where folks are walking and where there are missing connections,” Loch said. “We would then as a city start working toward developing these connections and improving existing trails.”

Speakers from the city, South Whidbey Parks & Recreation, Island County and Whidbey Camano Land Trust are scheduled.
