The Urbana Park District has been working with planners from the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission and members of a community steering committee to create a trails plan that will be implemented in phases in the coming months and years.

The park district is seeking comments about the plan during an open comment period.

The draft Urbana Park District Trails Master Plan (UTMP) is available for public review from through Thursday, November 26, 2015.  A presentation outlining this plan is also available for public viewing online.

The first phase of the trails plan is already underway with the construction of a new wide sidewalk along Broadway Avenue. This section of trail connects the north and south ends of Crystal Lake Park.
