A Trail Master Plan (TMP) Committee was formed in December 2003 at the suggestion of the Ashland Woodlands and Trails Association (AWTA) and with the recognition of Ashland City Council. AWTA had pointed out that a TMP was the missing component in the City's Open Space Plan, adopted by Council in 2002, and the Ashland Parks & Recreation Commission agreed.
Through the coordinated efforts of Ashland Parks & Recreation Commission (APRC) staff and seven voting members over a three-year period, a TMP document was created and approved by the Commission, then adopted by Council. At the time of its approval and adoption in 2006, a ten-year review was recommended.
In January 2017, a Trail Master Plan Update Committee was formed with the help of APRC staff. The Committee is comprised of seven voting members: two Parks Commissioners, two AWTA members and three members-at-large.
Public TMP Update Committee meetings are scheduled throughout 2017 and 2018. Meeting agendas and minutes are noticed on the City of Ashland website, including this page.
