Our Projects

 

Kimball Community Trail Project

The Kimball Community Trail Committee has researched options and costs from a variety of sources, both civil engineering firms and local contractors. We have opted to use area resources to lower costs while supporting local businesses. Gravel was chosen to keep the cost in the project budget.

The campaign is being launched with donations from The Howard and Peggy Atkins Donor Advised Fund and from the Erin Aerni Memorial Fund. Future funding will be provided by 1:1 matching grants from the Howard and Peggy Atkins Donor Advised Fund up to $20,000.00. Those funds will double your contribution. Your $500.00 becomes $1000.00!!

Costs  include miscellaneous construction costs, tree planting, signage, mulch, benches and rest areas, fencing, dog park fencing, maintenance, expansion and other enhancements.

Many volunteers have helped clean up the area, construct the path and plant trees. KAFF is overseeing and coordinating the trail. All contributions, large and small, are appreciated. Don’t forget they are tax deductible!
