Maybe I am lost in semantics.
As Alan indicates, the ULWG is at its end and will be disbanded. This public engagement piece is to show the citizens what their effort has resulted in- a solid document of Recommendations.
If you took the survey you get a sense of the high level of the Recommendations and they were also reviewed on the MTB Cypress facebook page in detail leading up to this month.
As I told Alan last month, MTB Cypress is pivoting from advocacy to capacity to get ready for the next process steps, as I outlined already above. Those were my exact words.
NO WHERE IN THE LAST ULWG MEETING TO DISCUSS THIS PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PIECE WAS IT EVER INDICATED "ABOUT NEXT STEPS." It maybe in your mind Alan, but to outright say it as such is misleading IMO. After this, there is one meeting for final edits, and one last meeting for signing off the document. Then to Council.
Yes, BPP is now starting to consider what they may do up there… in fact they have had 10 years to consider…
The Cypress Village Area Development Plan process will have much opportunity to discuss, as I outlined above, the topic of trails. That is the key time to really get discussing the hard decisions facing trails.
I do not see urgency in Alan's self proclaimed "pivot point of Cypress Trails" as this public engagement piece is about showcasing the Recommendations of the ULWG- and nothing more. And like Alan said, it also is contingent on the Trails Plan…
Sure, there might be Alan, a planner , someone from BPP , or even Parks there. But to set an expectation that anything we say tomorrow will indeed influence the process is a bit of a stretch- since that process will give ample opportunity to tell the people that will make the final determination of the future.
Come and chat about mountain biking. There will be a whole lot more discussion with the decision makers in the planning process coming up. So, maybe I am hung up on semantics.
