Some of the comments made at the City Council meeting by those who support the trail.

Shelly Kraft: "I am very passionate about the trails system." She said she uses a trail every day for exercise and many others do too.

John Bowling: "Mohaska Avenue was platted as a 40-foot road but was never built to city standards," he said, and should be closed. Mohaska Trail "is not just a walking path. It is transportation, but it is walking transportation."

Scott Vorhees: He runs six days a week for fitness and supports trails because they are safer than running on or next to streets. "There is a new cancer today, and it is the sedentary lifestyle," he said. "Connected communities are healthy communities."
