Over the last three years, a community buzz has been developing on Clay Street, feeding vibrant and robust commercial and social activity in our little section of Kerrville. In response, a group of business owners and City leadership is developing a project called the Kerrville Urban Trail System (KUTS). KUTS is a non-profit organization that promotes walkability and community vibrancy and cohesion among businesses and people through a system of independent walking/biking trails in districts throughout Kerrville.
Clay South will be the pilot trail project, extending from Depot Square at Schreiner St. to the Kerrville Farmers Market at Water St. The effort will identify best branding, design, and implementation strategies that satisfy the goals of the KUTS project. The goals of KUTS - Clay South include:
The Trailblazer was our initial fundraising event held on Friday, November 2, 2018 at the Plant Haus 2 on Jefferson Street, on a beautiful Hill Country night. The event included a chef-prepared pig roast, beer and wine, live music, a series of PechaKucha presentations (www.pechakucha.org), an introduction to the KUTS concept, and a silent auction. Through the generous support of ticket purchasers, sponsors, and donors, The Trailblazer raised nearly $15,000 in funds to be applied toward trail design.
KUTS designers Alissa Priebe and David Cater of Outposts-LA have completed the Concept Master Plan for Clay South! KUTS is currently working with business owners on Clay who have expressed interest in implementing specific elements of the Master Plan. Once these elements are planned out, we plan to host another public engagement event similar to The Trailblazer - with your help we can make it happen!
