The city of Sonora is eyeing a state grant program to possibly fund almost $1 million in work to expand the Dragoon Gulch trail.
The City Council will consider on Monday applying to the state’s Active Transportation Program, which is providing more than $129 million in grants to projects that encourage walking, biking and mobility. In the proposal, the city would seek $992,000 to complete the expansion of the popular trail to almost 10 miles over 102 acres.
The grant program is funded through myriad state and federal sources and requires a minimum of $250,000 for each grant application.
Also on Monday’s agenda is a proposal to seek grant funds for a regional transit access center that would help connect local residents with public transportation options. And the city council will consider appointing Ron Jensen to the city Planning Commission.
The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at 94 N. Washington St.
