system, with 10 miles of proposed trails and 4.1 miles of proposed bike lanes. Rivera said the trail system was a major priority for McAdams, because “the connection to nature” is what draws people to Highland Village. Phil Lozano, the city’s director of parks and recreation, said Highland Village’s parks and trails serve as an economic asset to the city. “The parks and trails provide great economic opportunities for the city as a whole, especially when you can connect residents to the business com- munity and other points of interest throughout the city,” Lozano said. “We looked at this as an opportunity for a refresh, to bring in some new trends in parks and recreation so we can have that user experience [be] a little bit bet- ter than it was.” Kathryn Zeringue, senior bicycle and pedestrian planner for McAdams, said improving the connectivity within the city’s trail network was a major focus of the plan. “Our main goal was to expand on the existing network and then ll in those critical missing links to fully complete the trail network,” Zeringue said. Zeringue said the addition of more bike paths will improve safety for pedestrians. “A lot of community members said that a key barrier to trail use was the lack of safe biking and walking to trail and park facilities,” Zeringue said. “So another key part was improving safety
along some of the major roadways.” What is next? Barring a few possible “tweaks,” the Nov. 15 version of the plan will be the one that council will vote on in December or January, according to McAdams Senior Landscape Architect Ron Stewart. The plan would serve as a guide for the future of the city, but Stevens said residents should not expect to see any major changes to Highland Village. “I’ve heard people say they don’t want Highland Village to change, and when you’re talking about 97% devel- oped, you’re really not going to change much,” Stevens said. “We are trying to maximize the sales tax base and the property tax base so we can continue Highland village as it is.” Jaworski added, despite the compre- hensive plan changes, he expects High- land Village’s values to remain intact. “There are parts of Highland Village that aren’t the same as they were in 1978, but in many ways, it is still the same city. The values are still the same,” he said. “Let’s look at our history and see that there have been opportunities; there have been moments where we had to make some tough choices about where our city goes, but every single time we’ve gotten it right.”
