The development of the Community-Wide Trails Implementation Plan was set in motion by The 2030 Vision for Coppell. Its purpose is to ensure that Coppell’s high quality of life will be maintained while still allowing for growth in the City and the region, as well as to formulate strategies to manage future opportunities and challenges. If done correctly, the implementation of a city-wide trail system can play a vital role in Coppell residents’ individual well-being, local economy and environment while also providing traffic congestion relief.
When completed, the Coppell trails system will link many neighborhood communities and provide connections to many key City destinations. By providing access to a wide array of retail, parks, schools, neighborhoods and other key City destinations, the trail system will establish a network of connections useful to many Coppell citizens. The system will enable outdoor enthusiasts to appreciate all that Coppell has to offer. Connections to existing and planned trails will encourage recreational use as well as bicycle commuting, as safer bicycle networks are established and expanded.
