Default Repp Road RS2477 reroute

Hello Lions!
I think this is coming to Cory on paper, but I had it emailed to be to pass along. I think all motor groups should provide input on the trail move.

I'm sure many of you know the Repp area. Overall it appears the trailhead relocation is reasonable...the longterm plan for the FNSB development is going to block access to many of the smaller trails in this area. Anyway, the input request is attached.

Dear All,



You are receiving this email because you are associated with a user-group organization which may potentially be affected by the proposed action. The Fairbanks North Star Borough has asked the State of Alaska to administratively reroute a portion of RST 641, the Chena Lowlands Winter Trail Connectors, a legislatively accepted but unplatted RS 2477 right of way. The reroute is only for a portion of RST 641 on Borough land within Section 28, Township 1 South, Range 2 East, Fairbanks Meridian (near Brock and Repp roads in North Pole, Alaska). More information about the proposed reroute is available at: http://notes4.state.ak.us/pn/pubnoti...b?OpenDocument

An attachment of a preliminary plat showing the proposed reroute is also available from the above URL.

If you would like to submit comments, please ensure they are submitted in writing before 5:00 PM on January 18, 2013, as indicated in the public notice.

I don't see any discussion, so I'll poke some on you all.

I sent a PM to Cory since I cannot add the aerial photo for you to see the proposed change.

My thoughts were this:

1. support the move (since the actual RS2477 route is NOT known), and the move would not block access.
2. support protection of a trailhead parking lot to allow continued access with legal, safe parking
3. stress year round access by all users since this is called a 'winter-connector' trail...we need access to the river and right now the State has taken the block across the pipeline from the FNSB.
4. stress motorized use, especially by vehicles and ATVs.
5. suggest parallel non-motorized (ski, hiking, bike) trail since the corridor is 100 feet...this would allow rutting and summer OHV use.
6. suggest development of a more broad trail system especially on the East of the Trans Alaska Pipeline.

Of course the FORL input is what your club decides.
I just think that any trail use the DNR inquires about really needs discussion and input.
