“The latest idea coming from the City of Durango’s Natural Lands Preservation Advisory Board is to find a future home for the next big thing – e-bikes.
At the heart of it all is the idea to create a new system of user-specific, directional trails for electric bicycles, or e-bikes, instead of opening up existing ones. And, it just so happens there’s a large swath of land south of downtown where this could happen: Durango Mesa Park.
The park is a 1,850-acre property that was donated for public use by Mark Katz, former owner of Mercury Payment Systems, and his family. The vision is to create a community hub that would be home to the La Plata County Fairgrounds, a sports complex, music festivals, parks and trails systems.”
