Metropolitan Branch Trail Patrols


In light of the recent robberies along the trail I encourage you all to take part in the trail patrols today and tomorrow. The trail patrols are a great way to deter crime, meet other trail users and get a work out. In addition to these patrols residents should continue to use the trail in mass. Doing so sends a message to criminals that we will continue to use the trail and wont be deterred by their actions.

Patrol details:

Wednesday (July 20) and Thursday (July 21) - 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm

Pocket park on the trail at S & 4th streets NE
