Recommend Approval
Executive Summary:

This Resolution would signal the City Councils support for the National Historic Trails Strategy Concept Plan, which endeavors to identify retracement routes for the 3 National Historic Trails which pass through Independence and other parts of the Kansas City region.
Background:

The National Park Service has prepared a National Historic Trails Strategy Concept Plan to identify retracement routes for the 3 National Historic Trails passing through Independence (Oregon, Santa Fe, and California).  The purpose of the Plan is to identify possible routes for modern trails that would follow historic trail routes as closely as practicable. Local governments would be encouraged to take these historic retracements into account in local land use, transportation, and trail plans as appropriate.

 

Marlene Nagel, Community Development Director for the Mid America Regional Council, will be present at the City Council meeting to make a presentation on this agenda item.
