Staff recently applied for the above mentioned grant funding offered by the state of California, Department of Parks and Recreation Resources Agency. Acceptance of the submittal for this grant is contingent upon City Council approval of the attached resolution which commits the City to carry out the project should the funds be awarded.
The Ridgeview Trail segment starts at the end of a cul-de-sac adjacent to Hidden Trails Elementary School and goes west to Vista Dorada Place, which connects to Sunset Park. The proposed project will include removal of old, deteriorated asphalt and replacement with new asphalt to provide a smooth trail surface for multiple travel modes that include walking, hiking, running, mountain biking, and occasional access for maintenance vehicles and the Chino Valley Independent Fire District during emergency events. Additional amenities will include trail markers, dog bag waste stations, and tree planting along this well used trail.
The total cost of the project is $421,520, of which the City must match $80,920 for a total grant amount of $340,600. Part of the local match will be achieved through in-kind labor provided by the Public Works Department. If awarded, staff will return to the City Council for funding approval.
