Blue Jacket Trail Partnership
At last Saturday afternoon’s community picnic hosted by the Eudora Parks & Recreation Foundation, Foundation President Justin Eddings, announced its partnership with Hamm,Inc. and CFS Engineers to replace the dilapidated Bluejacket Trail at no cost to the City. The much-used trail, which is around 20 years old, is in disrepair. Last year, City staff applied for grant from the State of Kansas to repair the trail but it was unsuccessful. Hamm, Inc. (which has a limestone quarry located just outside of town) approached the Parks & Recreation Foundation and offered to complete the project as an in-kind donation to the community. Before construction could take place, Hamm, Inc. requested an engineer’s construction drawings for the project and CFS Engineers stepped-up by also partnering an in-kind donation. The total combined value of the in-kind donation from these two partners is just over $125,000.
The replacement of the Bluejacket Trail by corporate donors is an incredible testament to the value of the Eudora Parks & Recreation Foundation. This group of residents worked together to match private and non-profit resources to fund parks and recreation priorities in our community.
Construction on the trail will be performed this summer. Stay tuned for construction dates.
