Weston Looks to Balance Nature, Growth

The residents of the village of Weston have given their leaders a directive. Keep our taxes low with continued growth, but don't take away our green spaces.

A housing boom is taking care of the first part of that equation, and Weston is working on the second.

The new Eau Claire River Trail is a mile and a half long next to the Eau Claire River. Crews are busy working on the path to get it ready by mid summer.

Officials plan to tie the path into the Mountain Bay trail running nearby.
