Grant Will Help Neighbors Design Columbia Slough Trail System Through Cully
March, 2016. Verde on behalf of Living Cully was awarded funds from the Metro Nature in Neighborhoods Regional Trails Grants program in the Spring of 2016 to support the final design and construction of a permanent Wayfinding System for the Cully Neighborhood as well as to start a community visioning process for a Regional Trail System along the Columbia Slough watershed through Cully as part of Living Cully Walks Phase 2. From December 2015-March 2016 Living Cully collected feedback from over 300 individuals and organizations about the 21 temporary Wayfinding signs that were installed in the neighborhood on December 15, 2015 and is currently working with a minority and women-owned design firm (Design + Culture Lab) to adapt the community feedback gathered into a permanent design, and construction drawings for installation in 2016-17. Phase 2 of the Living Cully Walks program will also include implementation of a Transportation Options curriculum for middle and high school youth in the fall of 2016.
