The Upper Hixon Forest is safe!

Last night's vote makes it official! From today's La Crosse Tribune:

"The council voted unanimously to make 160 bluffland acres known as the Upper Hixon Forest a city park.

The city acquired the former Experimental Farm on Hwy. FA in 1963 with the understanding it would be a park, but it never was formally designated.

Human Powered Trails now maintains a network of public trails on the land they say draws bikers from across the nation. More than 100 supporters of the public trails attended a meeting Tuesday, and thousands of people online and through petitions had urged the city not to open the land for development, as had been suggested in December."
Thanks to everyone that signed the petition!
Keep it real!
