The Trails Team has accomplished quite a bit in our short history. Aside from our Master Plan and Streetscape Plan we have succeeded in having a trail/walkway constructed along Sutton Road.



The Trails Team identified the alignment along Sutton Road between West Jefferson Elementary School and King Soopers as the first priority for a trail.  This route forms the backbone of the core trail system and is used daily by walkers and school children getting to and from school.  Before the trail, it posed a serious safety issue as walkers were forced to walk on street pavement or follow the drainage ditches.

The project was funded by a grant from the Jefferson County Conservation Trust Fund. Construction began in the summer of 2010 and the trail was ready by December. Now, pedestrians and bicyclists have a safe, paved walkway to follow.  It was also well received at the 2010 Christmas Parade as a great place to watch the Holiday festivities.
