Eagle Council Wants Huddle With Garden City on Greenbelt Controversy

by

The City of Eagle has formally weighed in on the bike-ban controversy circling a stretch of the Greenbelt that runs through Garden City.

Tuesday evening, the Eagle City Council unanimously approved a motion to send a letter to Garden City Mayor John Evans and the Garden City Council regarding the issue, asking for a sit-down on the matter.

"The current Garden City restriction has a direct and adverse impact on Eagle residents who would like to ride on the Greenbelt from Eagle to or through Garden City," read the letter.

Citizens for an Open Greenbelt have gone as far as to take the issue to the Fourth District Court, where a hearing on the matter is slated for Thursday, Dec. 15.
