The Beginning 2006

On December 14, 2006, the County Park staff met with concerned citizens regarding the future of establishing multi-use trails within Prince William County. -Up to this point there was no strategic vision for accomplishing such an endeavor nor were there any details for accomplishing such an effort in the County-s Plan.

Much discussion focused on the need for planning information on Parks, multi-use Trails, accessible streams, and other open spaces on maps that would be easily understood by County citizens. -The need for private, business and county government partnerships and building relationships among those and various existing organizations will be a key factor to future success.

At the end of the meeting, the citizens realized a real need for a citizen-s action group to assist Prince William County in developing a strategic vision and an achievable plan for County-wide network of trails and streams for passive recreation activities.
