The plan for the bike trail on the west side of US 36 north of Lee Hill Road on ecologically sensitive Open Space property was approved by the City Council on the condition that it carefully limit any negative impacts to the eco-systems there.

Habitat enhancement, carefully managed public access, compatible multi-use strategies, and targeted acquisitions of key links should all be addressed.
