Crosscitytrailduluth.com is the vision of the CCT from our group the Friends of Western Duluth Parks & Trails.
Great review John. Complicated trail with a few generations work before us. We are working to see that vision through.

The mayor vs. the zoo

John you didn't mention that Glensheen asked for $50,000 from the turist tax and received it. They also went back and asked for I believe two more installments for a total of $150,000. I'm not saying they aren't worth it. After all they are part of the tax system in total being a part of the UM system.
The more I have gotten to know how the city works the more I have realized the same conclusion you have reached. If they would just start the process with their cards on the table we would all save a bunch of time and money. This type of process promotes the feeling of big government where the later would promote the small government feeling not to mention getting the public more interested in participating.
The city staff is awesome, the administration can use some efficiency improvements in their process. Maybe the next administration will learn from this one. You can be cool and drink craft beer attend the great music venues rude the wonderful trails and work with the public and those that may se things a bit different but yet have the same goals. It's how we get there that really counts as well as getting there!

The mayor vs. the zoo

Don't forget that this Cross City Trail (CCT) section along the northern DWP route from 63rd to the Zoo and then on to Spirit Mountain was shoved through the Park and Rec commission last minute with NO PUBLIC INPUT to speak of! Then onto the council who knew nothing about much about the process. Its the mayor's section of the CCT, I call it the Ness CCT trail.
There is plenty of options to connect to the Munger trail head proper but he needs to bolster Spirit Mountain making it the new trail head for all trails which can make some sense to some but its the method that he uses to get what he wants. He can not work with others if they have difference of thought. Lets see how Emily or the next mayor differs, ask the candidates what they will do differently. Vote for someone that WILL WORK with the community and not the status quo way.
