...in the Siouxland Trails Foundation, or STF.
The reasons have to do with the recent events surrounding the trail bridge that will be built over the Big Sioux River form Sioux City, Iowa to Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.
In order for the CID board in the Dunes to agree to paying $50,000 of the $500,000 bridge Sioux City & STF had to compromise on 9 things. Part of the reason they did this is so they would not lose a grant that had a time limit on it. If it was not used the city would lose it. So they decide to hastily compromise as to not lose the grant.
Here are some threads I have posted about this:
Report regarding the bridge to connect the trail system in Sioux City & Dakota Dunes
I love the oppositions reasons to not build the bridge :rolleyes:
Here is an article in the paper explaining what the compromises are:
When I expressed my disappointment & asked about how the trail will connect other then trail users using the roadways to access the Dunes trails I was told it will be up to Dakota Dunes to determine that.
Because of all the politics involved with this that has lead to a trail bridge that will pretty much lead to no where I have had it.
what do you think? Should I quietly end my involvment in protest or keep fighting the good fight?
If I end my involvment I will complete the project I am currently working on for the STF. After which I will quietly stop doing things with them. I will no longer attend meetings, no longer work on projects, etc. Just simply disappear 7 have no more contact with them.
