On September 17th, the North Shore Mountain Bike Association is presenting a plan to the District of North Vancouver (DNV) to ask for funding and to create a formal partnership for trail care.
The NSMBA has created a plan to care for our trails. Many of these trails have important historical significance. To catch up on deferred maintenance, the NSMBA has created some powerful community initiatives including the Trail Adoption Plan
and the North Shore Builders Academy
. As riders, we are doing our part, now we are asking the same from the Land Managers.
We present this plan to DNV Council on Sept 17.
The objective of this plan, "A Community Driven Model for Sustainable Trail Maintenance"
, is to provide a structured and formal program of trail maintenance for our mountain trails. We believe a maintenance plan is integral in creating a sustainable future.
At 7:00pm on Monday, September 17th, Mathew Bond and Mark Wood of the NSMBA will be presenting this plan to District of North Vancouver council at 355 West Queens Road in North Vancouver to seek support through funding and partnership. If possible, please join us at council chambers to voice your support. There is opportunity for Public Input as part of the agenda. Arrive early, sign up at 6:30pm for a 2 minute time slot to ensure your voice is heard.
Ongoing funding for trail maintenance is the first step in securing a world-class trail network for today and into our future.
Please sign our petition
to show your support.
Trails for all, trails forever!
