City officials invite the public to learn about plans for Glendora’s first phase of an urban trail system.

The open house begins tonight, August 24 at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 116 E. Foothill Blvd., and runs until 7:30 p.m.

Attendees will get to see drawings and renderings for phase one of the San Dimas Trail Wash, part of the Glendora Urban Trails System that will run from the Louie Pompei Memorial Sports Complex west to Sunflower Avenue, as well as plans for the second and third phases, said Debbie Lopez, management analyst for the Community Services division.

Attendees will also get to meet trails architect David Volz of Landscape Architects, Inc.

Funding for phase one is coming from the city’s parks development fund, a fund developers pay a certain amount into, depending on project size as part of the permit process, Lopez said.

Funding is being sought for the second and third phase of the urban trail. When it is all complete, the trail will stretch from Pompei Park to Grand Avenue.

The San Dimas Wash Urban Trail would be just part of an 11.3-mile network of trails along the Little Dalton Wash, Big Dalton Wash and the San Dimas Wash.
