Committee Chair discusses trails on CCI Property, committee purpose and events
Buzz Carpenter, Chair of the Trails Committee, presented the quarterly report to the Hot Springs Village POA Board of Directors on March 16, 2022. Carpenter said the trails are a wonderful amenity to the Village and many people come here because of the trails.
Trails on CCI Property
“We know several of the trails are on or cross Cooper property. There is a risk they might be sold, but that doesn’t mean we are going to stop any maintenance.”
“The POA does not have the funds to purchase the property, so the committee is working through other organizations and trying to protect the value and keep our trails safe and keep them in the Village and maintain what we have, at least.”
Keeping the Trails Safe
The committee plans to continue keeping the trails safe for hikers. That is their main function and in order to do this, the committee members perform a monthly inspection of the trails. If something is found amiss during the inspection, the committee notifies the POA.
