Steps being made to fix Perimeter Trail

The Town of Smithers and Alpine Village Estates are working together to reestablish the closed section of the Town’s Perimeter Trail adjacent to Chicken Creek.

Last spring, this section of the trail was closed because the Alpine Village Estates storm sewer caused the creek bank to erode and cause land slippage.

As a result, the Town of Smithers discharged the Right of Way that permitted the Town’s trail to cross the Alpine Village Estates property and closed this portion of the trail.

The Town has offered to pay upwards of $40,000 to cover legal fees, fencing, engineering, and construction to help reestablish the Right of Way and rebuild this part of the trail.

The Town of Smithers and Alpine Village Estates have not settled on an offer to re-instate the closed portion of the trail.
