Coalition's gratitude overflows for donation of North Fork land

Community Rivers Planning Coalition (CRPC) would like to thank Spenard Builders Supply for its generous donation of 3.5 acres off the North Fork Road to our organization. CRPC is a broad-based volunteer organization whose purpose is to respond creatively and collaboratively to growth and change in the area drained by the Anchor River, Stariski Creek and Happy Valley Creek.

Community Rivers Planning Coalition plans to use the land as a trailhead that will connect to the state land directly behind the property. The trail will be used for skiing, snowmachining and other various recreational opportunities. Creating this trailhead is the first step in CRPC's Sustainable Development Plan that identified developing a network of multi-use trails as a main goal of the community.

CRPC will begin the planning phase for the creation of the trailhead at our next regular meeting, at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Chapman School Library.

Thanks again to Spenard Builders Supply for giving our organization and the community this opportunity.
