An article by Tom Benning in the Dallas Morning News on November 23, 2014 reported that the Dallas Park Board is considering spending $265,000 to install electronic people counters to study trail usage and plan for growth.

“The Dallas Park and Recreation Board will vote next month on a $265,000 contract to install electronic people counters along four major paths: the Katy Trail, the Northaven Trail, the trail around White Rock Lake and one in Kiest Park.”

“The proposal would then go to the Dallas City Council. If approved, the electronic counters could be installed by the spring.”
