The wheels are slowly beginning to move again on the development of the Willow Creek subdivision in Kalispell, a project that began in 2006.
The 140 acre swath just past the Alternate Highway 93 route was approved to be developed into the Willow Creek subdivision.
However, complications connecting the community with the nearby Meridian Bike Trail has impeded the project considerably.
On Monday, the city council is hosting an open work session to discuss their recommendations -- namely constructing a bike path that intersects Willow Creek's North Access Road across a narrow bottleneck.
In addition, the developer, Wayne Turner, has volunteered to build a small parking lot for bike path users.
"The reason why we're recommending approval of this at grade intersection is because in 2010 the bypass didn't exist, that bypass has now been developed so...it takes a tremendous amount of pressure off the Willow Creek area," explained Thomas Jentz, the Kalispell Planning Director.
If these recommendations are supported by the council Monday, they will be presented to the city council again in the next two weeks for official approval.
