Document Description
The Tulare County Association of Governments on behalf of the County of Tulare is proposing to develop the Santa Fe Bike Path/Multipurpose Trail Connection project that will link the cities of Tulare and Visalia. The project generally follows the historic BNSF railroad right-of-way. The southern terminus of the trail is at Prosperity Avenue and the northern terminus is Avenue 272. The proposed trail is approximately 5 miles long and consists of a Rail-to-Trail section (trail along an active rail corridor), and a Rail-with-Trail section (trail along an active rail corridor). Additionally, the County of Tulare seeks to acquire portions of 11 parcels of land, which include lands owned by irrigation districts and private landowners, for the project instead of accepting easements of use.
