Task Force Update August 2019:
The Mill Mountain Trail Plan Task Force has been hard at work this summer evaluating the current trails and Mill Mountain Greenway and are happy to report this part of the project is complete! Staff are now compiling all data from assessments to have the committee work on maintenance priorities of our current trails and greenways. We are also working with Southeast Action Forum, Riverland Walnut Hills and South Roanoke Neighbors to get on their future meeting agendas to gain input from Mill Mountain Park neighbors about current and future trail needs as well as neighborhood connections. We have also developed a survey that Task Force Members and Mill Mountain Advisory Board members will be facilitating to trail and greenway users on Mill Mountain throughout the fall, so if you see folks out with clipboards on the trails or greenways, stop by and share your thoughts! Findings from the Trail Assessments will be posted here soon.
Task Force Update december 2019:
The Mill Mountain Trail Plan Task Force has completed the public input process, visited all neighborhood groups, and conducted 11 survey sessions on Mill Mountain. This file of current trail maintenance needs provides information on identified maintenance needs for current trails. Task Force Members are working throughout the winter with the Roanoke Police Department and other agencies on feasibility and exploration of new trail corridors and connections for the Park. A draft plan public meeting will be scheduled for March 2020, so stay tuned!
