Price dedicates new walk-bike trail
"We are a small city, but we do things in a big way," Price Mayor Joe Piccolo told the audience at Wednesday's ribbon cutting for the new pedestrian-bike trail in south Price.
The trail was recently paved and is now officially open to non-motorized travel. It stretches from 600 South Carbon Ave. to the underpass at 100 North.
Piccolo said he envisions a trail extending from Scofield to Sunnyside - although he said he's not sure about in what century that will take place. He thanked Helper City for getting the ball rolling years ago by establishing the first walking trail along the banks of the river.
Students from Creekview Elementary were invited to tell what the path means to them. Among the comments: it is now safe to walk and bike to school, and it's a good way to get exercise.
USU Eastern botanist Jerry Anderson said the college is already sprouting some 1,600 native plants to landscape the length of the trail.
