The City of Richland, WA welcomes your feedback on the draft plan for the proposed Little Badger Mountain Trail connecting Little Badger Mountain to the existing trail to Badger Mountain.  The estimated 5.5 miles of trail is the first large-scale trail development project we've initiated in quite some time.  City staff have worked with the team at Michael Terrell Landscape Architecture, PLLC to develop the proposed trail system. A draft of the plan was presented to the Richland Parks and Recreation Commission for their feedback on Thursday, November 10, 2022.  To view the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting visit: https://richlandwa.new.swagit.com/videos/189427.  Considering Commission feedback, staff continued to work with MT-LA to refine the proposed plan which we are excited to share for citizen feedback!
