The question was asked "so what is the process for other parks and shared-use trails?" Larry Staub said that the process for opening other parks' trails for shared-use will include evaluation and study through the master plan process similar to what was done for Tryon and West Bay.
Well believe it or not the pilot program for Tryon Park and West Bay park are finally moving forward. The county has been working through their plan step by step and involving the community in order to make the process as transparent as possible.
GROC PLAN that was submitted to The County Parks Department:

What is the next step?
There will be 2 public workshops held by The Monroe County Parks Department at the parks:
The County Parks Department will conduct the following public Field Workshops:
Tryon Park Field Workshop -- July 27, 2010 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Meet at the new parking lot)
Irondequoit Bay Park West Field Workshop -- August 5, 2010 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Meet at the parking area on Bay Front South, west of the Irondequoit Bay Fish and Game Club)
We need a good turnout of GROC members to show our support for shared-use trails in Monroe County Parks. All are welcome to attend. Please come even if you might be late or cannot stay for the entire workshop. Dress accordingly with proper footwear.
Ellison Park Area Master Plan Update
Monroe County Parks and Recreation will start this Fall 2007 and continue through Spring 2008 to update a comprehensive Parks Master Plan for the following parklands: Ellison Park, Ellison Park Wetlands Area, Bay Park East, Bay Park West and Tryon Park. This process will include public input from citizens, residents and user groups. This is a great opportunity for our user group to become involved in the process and advocate for opening up trails, stewardship of the parks, discuss old and new trail options, promote sustainable multiple-use trails and design. This study dove tails perfectly with the Penfield led study of the Irondequoit Creek Corridor as a alternative transportation and recreation corridor. The county has expressed interest in off-road cycling as becoming a large part of this study. Therefore it is extremely important that we have a voice, cohesive message, get involved and communicate our desire as a user group to have access. If you live in Monroe County and want to get involved in this process that can only open doors to further access to our County Park System please click here.
