I own property with a recreation easement that was negotiated with the developer by the county about 15 years ago. Since I purchased the land with the easement in place, my situation differs from owners who see lines drawn across their land without their involvement or consent.

I can see why they might object. I can also say we’ve had no issues, and visitors from around the country who stay at our house rave about our access to recreation.

My concern here is with the Commissioners who seem unsupportive of trail development in general, including well-established ones like the Riverfront Trails.

Someday, perhaps the county will again elect people who see trails and other healthy outdoor amenities as economic drivers—not just oil and gas.
