ARTinCC is pleased to invite all interested members of the public to a planning meeting for the Fox-Hunt Community Park. For the past several years our group of volunteers has been planning and working on the Allegheny River Trail in Clarion County (ARTinCC) connecting Foxburg to Emlenton and, by extension, to Parker. In addition to the bike trail and in cooperation with Foxburg Borough, we have received a planning grant to develop a Community Park at the intersection of Rt 58 and Main St. The Park Planning Committee has been meeting regularly and soliciting input from some of the key players in the community. Bob Genter and Matt Lokay of Mackin Engineering have developed a “Preliminary Master Plan”. The images accompanying this post will give you a general idea of the scope of work and the projected budget. Click here or Copy/Paste to view the entire Plan:
PRELIMINARY MASTER PLAN
In the immediate future, we will begin implementing a $100,000 grant to create about 75 parking spots for the trail and shared use by the borough businesses. Also included is fencing to keep cyclists safe from the Shoup Trucking Company operations. A new, safe, boat launch is also a high priority. Our next step is to accept your ideas as additional key players and the general public who will use this park. We will soon be informing you of a date and place for the public meeting.
As you will learn, there will be many opportunities for fundraisers, donors at all levels, and local businesses to supply materials and services. Please look over the plan and come to the meeting prepared to offer your suggestions and your help. This is a huge, long term project and it will take the efforts of many people in the community. We welcome everyone! Watch for the meeting announcement.
