Today, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors approved a timeline and process to allocate $10.4 million in Trail funding. The money was originally provided by Stanford as mitigation in the 2000 General Use Permit agreement with Santa Clara County.
The top two projects recommended by Supervisors Kniss and Cortese were the Bay Trail gap near the Dumbarton Bridge, and the Adobe Creek bike/ped bridge over 101. Palo Alto is likely to submit more projects, and Stanford is rumored to be submitting an application for a jogging trail around the perimeter of campus.
The deadline for projects to apply for the funding is September 6, projects will be posted publicly on September 10, and the public hearing for allocating the funds is October 9.
