Paved Trails - Cumulative Number of Visits

Desired Result: Above Target

Analysis of Performance

Note: Quarterly data was not available prior to Q4 of 2012.

Trail counts are down in the 3rd quarter compared to last year for several reasons:
1. Construction along several sections of the Poudre Trail
2. Flooding on the Spring Creek Trail
3. Several issues with trail counters being stolen or not working properly. Staff is working to address both of these issues.

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.
