Today (May 15, 2019) started a two-day project to improve three key areas of the trail. We are having LoneStar Ranchscapes install TRUGRID pervious pavers to help with erosion.
The pavers will be installed at the ramp leading from the sidewalk to the playground, just east of the concrete by the pond, and finally on the steep portion of the trail that runs parallel with Manchaca Road. See the map below for the markers the correspond to the locations.
The pavers are meant to help with erosion and make those areas more accessible. The ramp has become eroded to the point of a drop-off, the area near the pond has become so muddy it's not passable after a rain, and the steepest portion of our trail has been plagued by ruts and runoff.
Anyone who has attended a Board meeting recently knows that we would love to invest more money into the trail to create long-term sustainable solutions for erosion, but our reserves and operating budget simply do not allow it at this time. These were defined as the most critical areas that could fit within the budget available to us for this year.
Our hope that this project creates forward momentum that we can build upon. Any and all feedback is welcome. You can either attend a meeting or contact us via the Contact page.
