LAS VEGAS (AP) — The City of Las Vegas is developing an adopt-a-trail program to help maintain the city’s more than 50 miles of trails.

City council members approved a $55,000 agreement this week with the nonprofit Outside Las Vegas Foundation, which was founded in 2000 and promotes trails among businesses and residents.

The foundation will be helping the city develop a volunteer base and recruit sponsors who can “adopt” a trail for $500 to $2,500 per sponsor.

Funding for the agreement comes from the city’s Green Building Fund, which is made up of federal grants, rebates and bonds. The Regional Transportation Commission is also covering $28,000 of the total cost.
