The Trail Use Agreement will also help those thinking of purchasing in this neighborhood understand the way of life that we want preserved. For those living here, we hope it will help protect one of the special aspects of the neighborhood.
The agreement has been created by the members of the Arroyo Hondo Land Trust steering committee to be as inclusive as possible. By virtue of living within the area defined in the agreement as being Arroyo Hondo, a resident is automatically a member of the Arroyo Hondo Land Trust (AHLT, a non-profit organization). Dues are voluntary and tax-deductible. There is no cost to signing the agreement and becoming a trail user.
Because we believe there is a mutual benefit to the creation of a formal trail system, we feel it is fair that people who wish to use it shall also allow access through their property. Thus if a property is fenced in a manner that prevents access to trails, or if it contains hazards that preclude safe passage on trails, then that property owner may need to consider making alterations or be excluded from participating in the trail system.
A vital component of the trail use system will be the creation of a map showing permitted trails, along with notes of any special use requests from landowners. This map is intended for use only by AHLT members and their guests and will be given to landowners upon the signing of the trail use agreement.
Please join us in building a stronger community by reading and signing the Trail Use Agreement
