KAMLOOPS — The City of Kamloops is looking for public feedback on a proposed trail system linking Sahali to the downtown. 

The Peterson Creek Multi-use Pathway will be a three metre wide, 1.7 km long, paved path connecting Summit Drive with Glenfair Drive.

City transportation engineer Liam Baker says Kamloops residents can have their say by filling out a survey on the City's website over the next few weeks.

"At this point we're looking for input from the public on some of the details that we'll be looking to add to the trail," Baker said, "like safety elements, rest areas, signage, connection to nature trails, impact on the natural environment, and things like that that we have the possibility to change at this point."

Baker says the ultimate goal is to provide a safe and direct patch for pedestrians and cyclists to travel between the two neighbourhoods.

The public is also invited to attend a public open house at Sa-Hali Secondary School at 6 p.m. on Nov. 23.
