The U.S. Forest Service is asking for public input about new recreation plans at Sabino Canyon. The meeting will be held Tuesday at the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center from 6-8 p.m.
The most recent recreation concept plan was developed 21 years ago.
"Many facilities, programs, and concepts have become outdated," said Heidi Schewel of the Forest Service in a press release.
Visitor recommendations compiled over the years were used to develop proposed additions to the park that will be discussed at the meeting.
These proposals include parking and trailhead facilities north of Sabino Canyon, an improved Bajada Loop Nature Trail, an eco-friendly transportation system including new bicycle routes, and an expanded visitor center.
Tuesday's meeting is the last public forum scheduled to take input on the plan, Schewel said.
