“It gives people a really easy, and low-cost way to exercise as a family and to keep moving. They can then live a more healthy lifestyle knowing that they have more exercise resources available to them,” says
Laura Helle, Vision 2020 Spokesperson.
Look to use these signs the next time you are out and about in the City of Austin. Making it easier to walk and bike The City of Austin is taking big strides towards making it easier to walk and bike. Vision 2020’s walk and bike trail committee has been working towards that goal. This group’s objective is to connect
the community through biking and walking trails.
In cooperation with the City of Austin and Mower County SHIP, thirteen directional signs have been
installed at key navigation points to clarify trail routes. These new trail signs will allow area residents and
visitors to make their way around the city for many years to come. In addition to the trail signs, volunteer
Dan Urlick designed and installed a series of scannable QR codes that allow trail users to see a map of the trail system with a ‘you-are-here’ arrow. These amenities will help encourage residents and
visitors to utilize the city’s trails and connect to the community through physical activity.
