is this really necessary? I have been walking to work for five years using this path. It saves me a couple minutes each day and I enjoy the feeling of walking down old railroad tracks. I know that I have seen motorcycles use this path, and if the problem is motorized vehicles, there's got to be some sort of a solution that would at least allow foot traffic and or bicycle traffic. It's probably outside of the city's jurisdiction, but if you can do anything to fix this I think it definitely adds to the aesthetic of the town and helps to make us a more walkable and bikeable City.
