Dover hosts 'trail talk'
DOVER — Dover Planning and Zoning Commission is inviting the public to join its “trail talk” next week.
The workshop meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 7, at 5:30 p.m. at Dover City Hall, 699 Lakeshore Ave. The meeting will focus on a proposal to link Dover to the Idaho-Washington border at Oldtown through a pathway system.
Liz Johnson-Gebhardt will update the commission on Priest Community Forest Connection’s work on a Dover-to-Oldtown trail connector that is under development on the western side of the Idaho Panhandle. Johnson-Gebhardt has been working on the Pend Oreille River Passage Trail since 2010. Through community workshops, student participation, Rotary Club and Kalispel Tribe support, and a constant quest for funding, the Passage program has built two miles of trail in Oldtown and is working its way toward the Albeni Falls Visitor Center. Dover is interested in efforts its community can make on the eastern end to eventually close the gap.
Dover will also review the newly completed Dover to Sandpoint Connector Trail within the city of Dover and feature other bicycle and trail systems connecting our communities.
