Sounds nice. I know my dog would like longer walks. But my question 
remains; Who pays for the trail, increased security, electricity for 
lights? It will cost more than a "shiny new quarter" EACH and it will 
cost every month. What is the trail worth? Leaf pickup? street repair? 
Christmas decorations?

To be honest, am a little confused. Maslow would say if we are concerned 
about the niceties of hiker/biker trails, personal security must not 
really be an issue.
