Cyprus Village Phase 2 engagement

    • Consider separating cycling paths from walking paths and vehicular traffic.
    • Preserve as many of the existing mountain biking trails as possible.
    • Consider the interface between the proposed multi-use path above the 1200’ contour and existing mountain biking trails.
    • Commit to subsequent process(es) to formalize, plan for, build, and manage mountain biking trails (in the proposed mountain biking area in Cypress Village and above the 1200’ contour).
