Monterey Getting $8,000,000 For A Short Section Of Recreation Trail Improvements

Eight Million Dollars for “to go from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Coast Guard station”. The money is coming from a grant (taxes) called the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 that was sold to the tax payers as an investment to fix our roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California. As usual, Governor Moonbeam lies about where our tax dollars are spent.

At least put some lights up and maybe a few 911 phones to cut down on the rapes, robberies and assaults that happens on that dangerous trail.

“Solutions for congested corridors are usually for Los Angeles or San Francisco so one of the things that we try to do with this grant is highlight the importance of offering an environmentally friendly and alternate form of transportation,” said Andrea Renny. She said that by creating a smoother running trail, drivers could be swayed to become bikers, therefore the improved Rec Trail could also serve to alleviate congestion on the road. And while some have advocated for the need to separate the bicyclists and pedestrians in that stretch of the trail, Renny said that the Parks and Recreation Master Plan calls for widening the trail first before other alternatives can be considered.
