  • The Leadership Santa Maria Valley Class of 2019 is setting out to create the Legacy Community Trail

    Right now, there is a dirt lot in the middle of Santa Maria. Near housing, this dirt lot attracts trash rather than traffic, and the Leadership Santa Maria Valley Class of 2019 wants to change that. As part of the year-long program, the class will develop the land into a walking trail that will cater to the local home and business owners, dog walkers, runners, or those who just want to get outside. An ambitious project, the class is relying on help from the community to make this project live up to its name, the Legacy Community Trail.

    Located on Carmen Lane between Blosser and the train tracks, Legacy Community Trail is a 4.6-acre parcel that the Leadership Santa Maria Valley Class is developing for its Legacy Project. After LSMV funds the planning, develops the foundation and infrastructure and installs 1,300 linear feet of finished walking path, the open space will be maintained by the City of Santa Maria for continued development. Plans include native landscaping, a demonstration fruit orchard and a community garden where residents can reserve space to grow their own plants and vegetables. It’s ideal for an area where quite a bit of high-density residential development has gone up in recent years.

    The Leadership Santa Maria Valley Class of 2019 is excited to leave their legacy through creating a public space the whole community can enjoy!
