West Point’s Trails & Pathway Committee will consider a new location for its August fundraiser after West Point’s City Council disapproved of a request to close a section of County Road 18 on a Saturday morning.
The request was dealt with at last Thursday night’s city council meeting.
Council members felt that County Road 18 carried too much traffic and was a key access road to trucks traveling to and from cattle feeding operations north of the city.
Committee member Tina Biteghe Bi Ndong said she understood the city’s concerns and that the group would consider an alternative location for its “Pave the Path” fundraiser.
The group wants to hold the event to promote the trails project underway in West Point. Biteghe Bi Ndong said fundraising is going well and that the committee will share more news on that front soon.
