The Greenbelt that runs along the north side of the Boise River in Garden City is a pedestrian-only path that city residents refer to as the Riverside Nature Path.
City residents will decide this fall if they want to open up the 1.5-mile path to bicyclists. Two initiatives will appear on the November ballot: one to repeal restrictions on bicyclists, and the other to permit all forms of non-motorized transportation.
A cost analysis study for converting the path will be discussed at the Garden City Council's regular meeting at 6 p.m. Monday. The meeting will be in the council's chambers, 6015 Glenwood St.
Citizens for an Open Greenbelt have been pushing for years for the Greenbelt to be opened up to bicyclists. A lawsuit filed in November of 2010 was dismissed in February of this year.
In July, members of the group presented petitions to the city proposing changes.
