Can the trails be concrete rather than asphalt?

Staff recommends asphalt trails due to the smooth pavement surface asphalt offers (no joints in asphalt), reduced potential for root heaving of the pavement compared to concrete panels, future maintenance considerations and life cycle costs. Trails are being recommended to better accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians along with providing an adequate width for city equipment to provide snow removal when compared to 5-foot wide sidewalks.
