Penouille Energy Trail

The aim of the project is to set up a network of signposts forming a sports trail encouraging visitors to engage in physical activity in the Penouille area. In concrete terms, this involves installing 7 round panels 18" in diameter (for the 7 exercise stations) and 6 round panels 16" in diameter (for the "sprint" stations: acceleration and deceleration). There is also a welcome sign to be positioned near the Welcome Center and/or parking lot. The exact location has yet to be determined. The format is 18 x 24 in. 4 panels will be fixed to the Penouille footbridge, while the other 9 panels will be installed along the main trail. There will be just one post on the point. For the welcome sign, 2 posts will be needed, considering the format. The posts will be purchased in next year's budget. We have 3 options that will allow us to do no excavation, here are the choices in order of priority: *The choice will be made according to next year's budget: A) Nextube post (buried anchor at 24") B) Wooden post (cedar) 2x2 buried at 24 in. C) U-Post (standard traffic sign post), buried at 24 in.
