A bike connection to the West Side would be fantastic. This needs to be a separate trail for bikers, joggers, walkers, etc. that is not connected with the vehicular traffic.

Can we also open the Hot Spot Skate Park up to bikes? That would open the park up to many other users. There are some good resources on why and how this should be done. (www.bikesbelong.org/resources/..., www.bikesbelong.org/assets/doc...) There are many places where this is a reality, why not Spartanburg?

What about the empty lot near Pine Street Elementary? Corner of Boyd and Mills. City purchase the lot and make it a great playground for elementary school kids.

The Rail Trail could certainly use a playground or two. One near the skate park and future dirt track/bike skills area would be nice... Also, a playground towards the southwest end would be good.

Just visited a bike park in Boulder, CO (vimeo.com/44254238). Something like this on a smaller scale would be incredible. Or if we could get something like Dupont State Park has (dupontforesttrails.com/trails/...) it would be awesome. If the city can get the land, I think we could get the materials and sweat equity to make it happen. Biketown.
