PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- Park City voters want to preserve their outdoor-rich lifestyle.

Voters on Tuesday approved a $15 million bond to build a pedestrian and bike friendly trail system through the city. The trails will connect neighborhoods and shopping district with mountain trails.

The system should make crossing the city on foot or bikes safer, especially for kids on their way to school.

Fifty-five percent of voters supported the proposal, which the city will pay off over 15 years. The bond will add about $111 to average homeowner's taxes.

Park City residents have historically approved recreational improvement bonds. Over six years, they've approved three, totaling $40 million.
