Residents fear added trail may add crime
Residents in a Medford neighborhood on the east side of town fear an extension of Larson Creek Trail may bring additional crime to their area.
The trail is set to go against the back property lines of several homes that are adjacent to the Rogue Valley Manor Golf Course. Residents fear the trail may bring undesirable issues such as illegal camping and other crime.
The city projects it will need to pay $70,000 to purchase easements from property owners in the area.
