CITY SECTION RAIL TRAIL CLOSED PDF Print E-mail

After meeting with city council last night we did not get permission for the city rail trail. The reason being the Feds so we don't belong, Claremont says no proof.

Last year the club lost our grant money for that trail because of this. Not only do we get grant money to help maintain our trails but the landowner is covered by a $2,000,000 liability policy for that part of their property.  

If the city had given us permission and someone got hurt that policy might not cover if the feds jumped into a lawsuit and said trails not legal, because we were never suppose to be there in the first place. 

The city is going to put in a waiver to see if we can get permission, everyone I and the city has talked to seems to think that we have a good chance of getting it just because we have been there from the beginning. We have gotten grant monies from state agency. No proof on the feds part.

I know no one feels worse about this than the club, but we are here for the long haul. If we do get the waiver, the club will be asking for it back and it will be behind us forever..
