Residents of the Coachella Valley call on the Coachella Valley Association of Governments ("CVAG") to improve the current plans for the valley wide CV Link pathway by including the following: Community Gardens for residents and schools to have access to garden plots for growing or learning to grow fruit and vegetables; Pavilions and open areas for the arts, music and and other outdoor community forums ; Exercise stations with basic outdoor park exercise equipment with instructions , information and appropriate health monitors such as air temperature, pollen count readings and other useful health information. Background: State Assembly Bill 1318 permitted a power plant to be located above the valley provided that funds are used to mitigate or lessen the resulting air pollution from the power plant by use of other projects and improvements in the valley. The power plant is funding much of the mitigation projects such as CV Link but cities and other sources will also be used, espcially for future maintenance of the valley wide pathway. CV Link is one of the projects that is funded by such mitigation funds and aimed at reducing carbon emmissions in the valley. CV Link is a planned pathway that will connect Palm Springs to Indio and eventually North Shore Salton Sea. The pathway will link to existing trails, parks, and bike paths as well as be expanded to include use of small electric vehicles (golf carts). Changing people's behavior to healtheir activities.
