The project is part of the city's plan to connect walking, hiking and biking trails.

Others argue the plan is unsafe and dangerous because it would be along a busy roadway.

The Saratoga Springs City Council voted to use eminent domain powers to seize property for the trail, which would cut a portion out of a Ballston Spa couple's lawn.

That couple and Ballston Spa have filed a lawsuit to keep it from happening.
