Mission To raise public awareness, promote safe public use, and oversee completion and enhancements of the Virginia Capital Trail.
Recent Accomplishments: Trailhead plaza in James City County, signage along James City County and Charles City County phases, record setting Cap2Cap bike event.
Goals: Trailhead facility along downtown Richmond phase, another record-setting Cap2Cap event, progress on Varina and New Market Heights phases, groundbreaking in Charles City County for Sherwood Forest phase.
The VCTF is currently in progress building the trailhead facility at Shiplock Park in downtown Richmond. The total cost for this is approximately $200,000. We've raised $100,000 in private grants and are in progress obtaining matching funds. We are also in need of volunteers for the 2014 Cap2Cap bike event, which is scheduled for May 10, 2014, and extends from Richmond to James City County.
Background The VCTF was established in 2005 to oversee the construction of the Virginia Capital Trail. Given the scope of the project, it was recognized that construction would span multiple gubernatorial administrations and that an entity should be established to provide oversight throughout the project, to insure completion of the trail. The VCTF was also tasked with enhancing the trail so as to make it a world-class draw. The Foundation's mission has grown to include raising the visibility of the trail, working with local, regional and national partners to promote this unique amenity and bring visitors from near and far.
CEO Statement One of the exciting things growing from the Virginia Capital Trail project is the spreading realization that biking and walking infrastructure is good for a city. We've noticed that as the trail has taken shape, more people are drawn to it for health, recreation and overall fitness, as well as commuting purposes. The benefits of this type of project are felt not just by those who use it, but by everyone in the region. Increased property values, less congested roads, cleaner air, healthier community - these are all part of what dedicated multi-use trails do for cities. Making sure Richmond and the wider region take advantage of a 50+-mile trail like the Virginia Capital Trail is a very important part of our mission. We fervently believe that our quality of life will be vastly improved by our region's network of bike and pedestrian infrastructure. As the first trail of its type in the area, the Virginia Capital Trail is poised to spearhead this type of renewal and improve vitality in the region. The amenities we add, such as benches, bike racks and shade structures, all work to make the trail experience safe and enjoyable for users of all abilities. By presenting history, wildlife and the environment through interpretive signage, we also elevate the trail to a valuable educational resource. We're looking forward to completion in 2015, when everyone will be able to get out and enjoy the Virginia Capital Trail.
