Dozens of community members from the Hinkson Valley neighborhood showed up to express concerns about safety and crime Tuesday night at a meeting concerning trail construction between Shepard Hills and Rollins Road.

The meeting at the Reichman Pavilion at Stephens Lake Park was organized by It’s Our Wild Nature, a nonprofit organization that owns land annexed by the city to build the trail. The organization sued in the 13th Circuit Court of Boone County to block the trail but lost the case in January, according to previous Missourian reporting.
