    If the secondary peice that connects the other end of this trail with the hwy goes in, it will become a speedway for bikers. Homeowners may not want to have that many strangers at high speeds coming thru the neighborhood.

    No. do not decrease trees and landscaping. Do not allow the bike trails to cut thru Arbor homes and you will not need to do this.

    This needs to be addressed. The parking of pick up vehicles on main street and down towards the development creates unsafe conditions. The schools were not held accountable for the traffic plan when the elementary went in. it needs to be addressed.

    Bike lanes to where east? seems like a waste of money with no hook up to other trails. Very unsafe conditions.

    Not a good option. why divert from hwy 47? your dealing with kids and bikes on trail with a live trainline very close. The route around sunset park is much better and safer.

    This would be good if the overpass on the tracks can let us drop into the golf course. Having it big enough for golf carts would add value to the arbor village as a way to get to the golf course quickly without the highway.

    This is the BEST plan to hook up from Forest Grove and avoid the dangers of the downtown area. And the dangers of the school area when kids are coming and going. It is not as good for business but since we don't have bike lanes we need to have a safe way for bikers to get around town. DO THIS TRAIL.

    I noticed the plan does not take bike lanes all the way thru town. They stop short. This is a safety issue. For a town that has the trial, we really need to get the downtown set up for bikes to go thru safely.

    This should not happen... Extending to the hwy will bring bikers thru the nieghborhood, and on the wetlands trail. This will create safety issues as bikes come thru in groups and with the white fences on each side there is no where to get out of the way.

    I believe that parking is just as much as a priority as the bike routes. If you want to promote tourism then you need places for people to park that is not in the downtown's businesses parking lots or on main st./hwy 47 which is already hard to get through with farm equipment. I would like to see the city or state look into parking on one of the side streets by purchasing a house or two.

    As a biker and resident who currently lives along the tracks, i am both excited and concerned about these plans. I am excited, because i would definitely plan to use the trail, and my kids would enjoy it a great deal as well in the future. My primary concern would be that we wouldn't see increased theft/crime/vandalism from folks having increased access to our backyard.

    Yes, please install bike lanes! I am a biker in the area, we need safe routes through main street on our bikes so we're not interfering with traffic and putting ourselves/others in danger.

    I am a big fan of this! As someone who bikes, lives along the tracks, and takes 2 of his kids in a trailer, not having to use main street to get to the Banks-Vernonia trail will be great!
