City unveils preliminary design for Fortuna trail

After a week of planning and designing, the John Campbell Memorial Greenway is starting to take shape. Today, Fortuna city staff unveiled the preliminary design of the proposed trail.

The City hosted daily events to get input from the public. It started off on Monday with a tour of the proposed path and concluded Friday night with a presentation of the preliminary design. The trail is slated to be a 1.6-mile stretch following Strong Creek from Newburg Park to Highway 101.

City staff said will use what they gathered from this week’s design fair to prepare a master plan, which is possible through a $100,000 grant from Caltrans.
