At their May 29 public work session, Centerville City officials determined that adding more bike paths to the city would be a high priority for the upcoming year.
The two largest bike paths already scheduled to be created are along Frontage Road down to Parrish Lane, and along 400 West from Parrish Lane south.
Though 400 West is ready right now to be adapted for a bike path, patch repaving work will have to occur along the side of frontage road before a bike path can be added.
The money for both is expected to come from the $100,000 lump sum provided to the trails committee in this year's budget.
"It's not going to cost very much," said Centerville City Finance Director Blaine Lutz. "The paving might, but the rest is mostly just running a line of white paint down the street."
Though a bike trail was also considered along 400 West north of Parrish Lane, city officials decided that a trail would be unnecessary and difficult to accommodate along that stretch of road. Other areas of the city are also being considered.
Though the trails will have to officially be approved by the trails committee since the funds will be coming from their budget, Centerville officials are determined that the trails will become reality as quickly as possible.
"We'll designate it a priority and throw it to the trails committee," said Centerville Mayor Ronald Russell. "But if it doesn't happen soon, we'll just do it anyway."
