A proposed expansion of the Leo Adler Memorial Parkway secured a big boost in the wake of the Baker City Budget Committee hearings last month after officials set aside money to try to buy property near Wade Williams Elks Memorial Park.

The budget committee added $36,000 to the 2014-2015 budget to buy the property.

City Manager Mike Kee said the long-term plan for the property is to transform it into a trailhead for the Adler Parkway, a paved pedestrian and bicycle route that starts at the north edge of the city at Hughes Lane and follows the Powder River south to its current terminus at Bridge Street.

That’s several blocks north of Wade Williams.

While the property purchase near the park, a Little League baseball complex that’s just east of the river, will be a leap forward in terms of the future, a lot of work remains, Kee said.
