Community input and guidance is necessary for any trail system to grow in a holistic direction. This is why FTI has three subcommittees: Education and Outreach, Conservation and Restoration, and Financial Sustainability. These subcommittee volunteer groups meet quarterly and assist FTI in taking Flagstaff’s trails from good to extraordinary. Each has its own purpose and goals derived from the Flagstaff Regional Trails Strategy.
Education and Outreach
Goal F: Create a safe and fun experience for trial users
Goal G: Educate, inform and involve the community in trail stewardship
Goal H: Use trails to build the next generation of youth stewards
Conservation and Restoration
Goal D: Balance trail development and management with community conservation and natural resource goals with an emphasis on restoration
Goal E: Ensure historic and prehistoric sites, including know American Indian sacred places and traditional cultural properties, are preserved and protected for their cultural importance
Goal I: Improve the financial sustainability of trail management
Goal J: Integrate trail planning and management with tourism and economic goals
