Ribbon Cutting

On June 12, I held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the Hookston Station Landscaping Project. The completion of this project provides a second paved trail adjacent to the Iron Horse Trail for pedestrians, new trees and shrubs, and a historical sign which provides trail users with information on this former railroad corridor. 

This Contra Costa County project was constructed by Mark Scott Construction and funded with Park Dedication and East Bay Regional Park District Measure WW grant funds. It was completed in partnership with the Colony Park Neighbors Association, East Bay Regional Park District and the Iron Horse Corridor Advisory Committee.

 

This project is adjacent to the Iron Horse Trail between Hookston Road and Mayhew Way in Pleasant Hill. We had a great turn out for this event including East Bay Regional Park District Board Director, Beverly Lane. Pleasant Hill City Councilmember Sue Noack joined us, along with Walnut Creek City Councilmember Kevin Wilk. We also had representatives from the business community: Steve Van Dorn, Executive Director & CEO of the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce, and Lynette Busby, Executive Director of Contra Costa Centre Transit Village.

 

This project is a great example of how the County can collaborate with the community on a project that will benefit all of our residents that utilize our extensive trail system. I want to thank the community and all of our partners that helped to bring this vision to fruition.
