How would one go about getting in contact with Holly Jenkin's group? I certainly am in agreement with their position on this.

Think about how intrusive over 6 miles of paved trails would be in this amazing park! Aren't there enough paved trails around the TC for bikers, bladers, and strollers? What's wrong with asking people to HIKE if they want to explore the beauty of Lebanon Hills? If people are so concerned about the accessibility issue then why not build a nice 6 mile ROAD through the park?! That way we can all just stay in our cars to enjoy nature.....

Fantastic to read this article-made my Mother's Day. It is so important that we do all we can in our community to encourage people to connect with outdoors and to stay active year-round! How thrilling to hear that there is a place for strollers, rucumbant bikes and access for young children to ride their bikes without traffic. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast who camps and does it all, but everyone has their own way of enjoying the outdoors-and if a paved trail increases use and opportunity, hats off to the park staff encouraging this change. Access matters!

Paving Lebanon Hills is the dumbest idea I have heard this week. I have walked in this park daily for 16 years and the only people in the park are us dog walkers and mountain bikers who DO NOT want to see more pavement. There is no need to spend money on paving a roller-bike trail when there is already a City of Eagan street and sidewalk alongside this proposed trail. Call your Commissioner today and get this stopped! Facebook page DontPaveLebanonHillsRegionalPark is under construction.

Most likely, dogs will only be allowed on the paved trails once they are constructed. Hyland Park made the mistake of banning dogs from the turf trails, moving them to the paved trails. This has created some dangerous situations with fast moving bikes and bladers. IMO dogs should be allowed on the turf trails as well.
