Alachua County Commission Votes to Keep Archer Braid Trail Out of Haile Plantation
GAINESVILLE- By a 3-2 margin Tuesday night they cast a decisive vote on whether the planned trail should run through Haile Plantation neighborhoods.
The decision may have been cemented by the results of a poll taken by Haile residents.
The Homeowner's Association of Haile presented the result of a community referendum on having the Archer Braid Trail run through Haile Plantation neighborhoods...82 percent were against it.
County Commissioner, Winston Bradley voted in favor of running the trail through Haile last time the issue came up in a meeting, but also asked for a sense of what Haile residents thought.
As a result he changed his vote and the plan failed.
Haile resident, Dorothy Benson says, "It doesn't mimic the way the existing trail system blends with the environment and in my opinion it doesn't match our community's design or enhance our community aesthetically and the 82 percent tells you alot of my friends and neighbors agree with me."
Commissioners directed county staff to develop plans for the multi use path to run along archer road, instead of Haile Plantation.
