Many people that are familiar with trails in the four corners states, or specifically those in Durango, could tell you about their safety concerns on steep narrow trails with blind corners and the importance that one-way directional designation has for people using them.

While enforcing one-way directional traffic on these trails is unrealistic, the educational component behind the reasoning for such encouragement is priceless.

This petition letter (below) will be  sent to Durango’s Parks and Recreation Director Cathy Metz, who has said that she will forward it each time that it is signed by someone to all of the members of Durango’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board as well as to Durango’s Natural Lands Preservation Advisory Board. Together, these two Boards will eventually decide whether the City of Durango should encourage one-way directional travel on any of the trails on City-owned open space.

Please consider making your voice heard with City Officials by signing this custom petition and sharing your tactical action with others on Facebook.

 

Thank You,
