Analysis of Performance
The Poudre Trail is still closed between Taft Hill Road and Lee Martinez Park, and has had intermittent closures / negative impacts due to construction at the Mulberry St. and Lemay Ave. intersection and also at the Environmental Learning Center. Those projects have decreased the number of trail users along the Poudre Trail. Even with these trail closures, participation on the City trail system was very strong in Q1; likely due to the above average temperatures during the first three months of the year.
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.
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.
