Boise Regional REALTORS® Help Open New Foothills Trail

Trailhead-25Boise Regional REALTORS® (BRR) is having another tremendous year of successfully being awarded REALTOR® Party grants, which help us advocate important issues and strengthen our community relationships. Most recently, we completed a partnership with The Land Trust of the Treasure Valley, in conjunction with Cartwright Ranch, the Hidden Springs Community, and several private landowners. With the use of various public trail agreements, Boise Regional REALTORS® were able to provide trail markers, a trailhead sign, and map, along with hardworking volunteers who helped create a safe path for our entire community to enjoy. On September 21, 2018, we were able to officially open the Cartwright Trailhead with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

As part of our REALTOR® Party advocacy and community engagement efforts, the trailhead sign and markers were paid for by a National Association of REALTORS® Placemaking Grant, secured by Boise Regional REALTORS® (BRR) as well as BRR presidential gift money. BRR’s direct contribution was dedicated to our Immediate Past President Katrina Wehr, an avid mountain biker and outdoor enthusiast.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Cartwright Trail, it offers beautiful views of the valley and surrounding mountains. It’s also significant because it is becoming a vital connection to various different open spaces in the western foothills. BRR encourages association members and the public to explore and enjoy this new trail in the foothills.

“Our members are real estate professionals in the community who understand the value and support the creation and maintenance of trails and open space,” said Gary Salisbury, 2018 Boise Regional REALTORS® President and senior sales consultant for Equity Northwest Real Estate. “Bringing to life a new segment of trail was a natural fit for us and we look forward to enjoying it for years to come.”
