Analysis of Performance

This is a quarterly measure. Trail visits did not meet the target in the 3rd quarter of 2019 due to a broken trail counter.  If the counter was working properly the target would have been met.  Overall counts have been down this year due to trail closures for construction projects earlier in the year and cool rainy weather in the spring.

The broken trail counter has been replaced.

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.
