1.  Approve the Agreement as presented; or,

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

This Agreement provides 100% funding for the design of the Leesburg-Wildwood Trail segments as illustrated.  The City will incur some minor costs of staff time in the administration of this Agreement and some costs of administration of the design effort, when it commences.  The City incurs no obligation to construct the trail segments, now or in the future.
