The proposed cost to adopt each amenity is <br />provided in the attached table. Costs include an estimated cost to purchase and install <br />each amenity, the cost to purchase and install the plaque, and an administration fee, <br />rounded to the nearest $100 for costs under $1,000 and $500 for costs over $1,000. <br />Purchase and installation fees for each amenity are based upon actual costs associated <br />with recent trail construction projects, including Trout Creek Trail and the Truckee River <br />Legacy Trail. <br /> <br />The amenity adoption revenues are intended to generate funds for trails by allowing <br />people to adopt amenities that currently exist. When existing amenities are all adopted, <br />new amenities will not be added for the purpose of having an amenity that can be <br />adopted. For example, if all benches are adopted and there is a request for a bench <br />adoption, a new bench will not be installed to satisfy the request of the bench adoption. <br />However, the Town will remain open to examining the possibility of installing new <br />amenities should there be a need for a specific amenity in a new location. The decision <br />to install amenities will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis or as a part of the overall <br />design of a new trail. <br /> <br />Interpretive signs are currently not included on the amenity list as it was determined it <br />would be difficult to attach a plaque to an interpretive sign without interfering with the <br />interpretive display. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
