October Workday CANCELLED for air quality

Our Rec and Park staff have made the decision to cancel the Panhandle workday on Saturday, Oct 14 due to the poor air quality. This decision is in keeping with a number of other outdoor activities that are being curtailed due to the same reason.

Panhandle bike path re-striped, ladder crosswalk striping added

The center stripe of the Panhandle bike path has been repainted for the first time in years. Along with the repainted yellow center line, the city has added ladder crosswalk striping at all of the locations where pathways cross the bike path.

The striping is another facet of Rec & Park's Panhandle Pedestrian Safety Improvement Project, which began late in 2016 and was put on hold during our wet winter. The prominent center stripe will make it more apparent that the north side pathway is intended for bike travel, and with the south pathway recently resurfaced, there's hope that a greater portion of pedestrian traffic will use the south path. The new crosswalks remind people on bikes to be alert to anyone who may step across their path.
