News Nugget of the Day

The Fayetteville Alternative Transportation and Trails Master Plan earned Mayor Dan Coody an award for climate protection at the 75th annual meeting of the U. S. Conference of Mayors.

According to a release issued by the conference, “through [Coody’s] leadership, the city of Fayetteville’s Alternative Transportation and Trail Master Plan has created 129 miles of multiuse trails and 163 miles of on-street linkages to the city. ”

[I]t wasn’t entirely correct. The master plan calls for that many miles of trails and linkages; however, only about 16 miles of trails have been completed, according to Matt Mihalevich, city trails coordinator.

Coody said he did not know where the information came from.
