The City of Cupertino is hosting a public meeting on Thursday, Dec. 20 to gather resident feedback about the Regnart Creek Trail project.
From 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Cupertino Community Hall, the City says residents are invited to “share their thoughts, ideas, and comments on how City staff can effectively engage the community throughout the design process.”
According to the City, Regnart Creek Trail is a proposed trail segment that would provide an off-street bicycle and pedestrian system that runs parallel to the existing Regnart Creek and provide a connection between Pacifica Drive and the existing Creekside Trail at East Estates Drive.
The trail has been recognized as potential safe route to nearby schools and “a vital connector of the neighborhood to local destinations in the vicinity of the creek, including the Cupertino Library and Civic Center, Wilson Park, and Creekside Park,” as stated on the City website.
On Aug. 21, the City Council unanimously voted to approve a project feasibility study. The design process will include “rigorous outreach to residents living along the Regnart Creek Trail alignment to ensure that design elements which address resident concerns regarding safety and privacy are incorporated into the final trail design,” according to the city.
The project is currently in the engineering and environmental review phase, which is expected to continue through June. The City Council could approve a construction budget in May.
