Go-ahead to zip lines construction.
City commissioners decided Wednesday night to enter into a 10-year contract with a private company that's going to create an aerial adventure course. And if all goes well over the next decade, possible contract extensions built into the deal could have people flying from tree to tree for the next 35 years.
The maze of ropes, hanging nets, suspended logs and zip lines will be laced into the treetops by early July. Eventually climbing walls and other challenging activities could added inside the park at the intersection of Nova Road and International Speedway Boulevard.Officials have said they'll spend $500,000 creating the first phase of the aerial challenges that will be at least 30 feet off the ground and concentrated in the northern half of the park. They've committed to not taking down or damaging any of the trees they'll use, and the trees will be regularly inspected for safety.
