BLM requests input seeking comments on the construction of a connector trail between China Gardens and the Gold Dredge Trailhead. This would make the Clear Creek Greenway an unbroken trail [see attached word document].
Speaker Presentation or Program: I have invited Robb Korinke who represents a group called Speak Up Shasta which is opposing a proposed Casino development on east bank of the Sacramento River, south of Bonnyview Road. Riparian land is extremely valuable for many reasons, and what happens here will matter greatly to this community and what it will become.

Trail News: The COR just approved a Grant Agreement for the Urban Greening Grant Program to build a trail following Boulder Creek. It will connect the Highland Park neighborhood to the 299 Trail at the intersection of Interstate 5 and Highway 299 [see attached Report to City Council].
Old Business: Upper Jenny Creek—All work postponed until autumn due to snow damage.
Salt Creek Heights Trails Advocacy and Project—A trail from the park to the SLT is promised. WST to Swasey Connection—We will work with the Redding Trail Alliance on this issue. They do not know who flagged a trail on private property, but it did infuriate the landowner and set back a Haute Route trail connection for now.
Other Items, Input from the floor: Adjournment
