Last March, I first told you about the Northaven Trail — and the community support group that would likely follow. Well, that time’s arrived. Dallas park board member Lee Kleinman is heading up the new group, which is having its first meeting Tuesday night at 7:30 at the Cindi’s off N. Central Expressway.

During the meeting, Kleinman will discuss the group’s primary role: to maintain and beautify the trail. It will also be a chance for interested neighbors to get themselves organized, as board members and officers will be needed. The meeting is open to anyone in the neighborhood who is interested, no RSVP required.

The group will operate much like the Friends of the Katy Trail and the Friends of the Prestonridge Trail. Both of these groups have helped groom these otherwise ho-hum trails into crown jewels, more like vertical parks really. During a recent podcast, my co-editors and I recently discussed the impact these groups can have. Here’s a link, incase you missed it.
