Bridge Donation

DRAFT

Please note that if you wish to make a general donation to the FACTS organization go to this link FACTS Donate.

The current page is for a targeted gift only toward the 52nd Street Bridge Project.

THE BRIDGE PROJECT:  The Foundation for Ada/Canyon Trails Systems, Inc. (“FACTS”), in partnership with the Garden City, is raising funds to design, construct and install a pedestrian bridge connecting Plantation Island at the west end of Garden City’s greenbelt pathway system near the Les Bois Park Track.  

THE NEED:  Currently the Garden City greenbelt pathway system ends at 52nd St.  From that point pathway users have to use 52nd St., which is a residential neighborhood with no sidewalks or pathways.  Pathway users then have to turn right and use Remington Road.  Remington Road is parallel to and along the side of the old Les Boise race track before connecting back with the Greenbelt pathway by the Boise River.  The Bridge Project will connect the Garden City Greenbelt pathway system with Plantation Island which is already connected to Boise’s pathway system to the east and the Greenbelt pathway system to the west along the Boise river.  Cyclists and pedestrians will remain on the greenbelt pathway.

HOW FACTS IS PARTICIPATING:  The FACTS Board of Director has established, by resolution, a special trust fund into which all donations to FACTS for this project, will be deposited.  The trust fund prohibits any expenditures from that fund except for the completion of the Bridge Project.  

HOW MUCH MUST BE RAISED:  The FACTS Board of Directors has committed to raise the sum of $__________________ toward this Bridge Project.  Other agencies and sponsors have committed to commit funds to this Bridge Project include the following:
