Grant to fund bike-trail planning

A recently acquired $170,000 grant will help fund the planning of more bicycle and pedestrian trails for Costa Mesa, according to a city announcement Wednesday.

The funds come from the Southern California Assn. of Governments, a Los Angeles-based planning organization that represents 191 cities. Stakeholders and the general public will have chances to provide input on the trails.

Officials said the trail options are one that uses existing maintenance roads along the Paularino and Santa Ana-Delhi flood control channels; one that goes along Adams Avenue to connect bicycle trails in Fairview Park and Harbor Boulevard; and trails that go through Orange Coast College.

More funding will eventually be needed for the final design and construction of the trails, city officials said.
