Newark City Council

October 28, 2010

Public Hearings

The Bay Trail is a planned recreational corridor that, when complete, will encircle San Francisco and San Pablo Bays with a continuous 500-mile network of bicycling and hiking trails. It will connect the shoreline of all nine bay area counties.

Council Matters
