Analysis of Performance

Trail visits were down in the second quarter of 2019 compared to last year due to the closure of Spring Creek Trail west of Taft Hill Road for a majority of the quarter.  Additionally, construction along the Spring Creek Trail at Edora reduced visits.   Cool rainy weather in May and June also contributed to less visits this quarter.  Even with lower visits the target was still met for this quarter. 

Metric Definition
The total number of people accessing and utilizing the City's paved trails system.
Why Is This Important?
This metric provides an indication of the popularity of trails which, in turn, indicates how well the trail system is meeting the needs of the community.
City Organization Impact on Performance

High – Park Planning and Development influences this metric by providing an accessible, well-planned paved trail system that serves the community's trail commuters and recreational users.

Benchmark Information
This metric contains no benchmark data due to the lack of comparable data. There is no accepted standard for what qualifies as a trail; for example some communities includes paved surfaces within neighborhood parks. There is also no standard method for the calculations used to determine the number of visits.
