While this continuance of the Iron Horse Trail is being portrayed as a positive, nothing is mentioned about the negative impact this is going to have on the community is going through. The quiet community of Valencia will be exposed to an influx of public traffic. The Association owns the land the trail is going through. However, there has been no courtesy to the Association or the community in regards to the change that it going to occur. The playground will be removed, the tennis courts and basketball court will be removed and relocated to another park. This does not even touch on the increased maintenance and liability that will be added to the Association and the homeowners in this community. Shame on the City for allowing this to happen to these homeowners.

Excellent news. I'll enjoy using this new trail as part of my workouts.

Why can't you just go down Stoneridge from Santa Rita, hang a right at Willow and in a couple of blocks you are at the BART station. These streets are tree lined, with sidewalks and bicycle lanes. Why all the effort, money, and disruption to build something that already exists? Putting up a couple of signs is all that is needed.
