Springdale Considering Electric Vehicles for Trail Response

STAFF PHOTO ANTHONY REYES Cpl. Jared Pena, checks out the bed of an electric Polaris Ranger off-road vehicle March 13 at the Springdale Police Department in Springdale. The city is looking at buying small vehicles for use on trails.

Walkers, runners and bicycle riders will occasionally have to share city trails with vehicles, but those vehicles won't be belching exhaust.


The Razorback Greenway

The greenway is a 36-mile trail from Fayetteville to Bentonville that will run parallel to Spring Creek through downtown Springdale. Spring Creek will be a water feature for the development.

A $15 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant is helping to pay for the greenway. Matching money is coming from $15 million pledged by the Walton Family Foundation for area trails.
