(a) Upon receipt of permission from the appropriate federal agency to enter into negotiations for interim trail use, the responsible party shall give written notice to each adjacent property owner that the responsible party intends to build a recreational trail adjacent to the property owner's property.  The responsible party may utilize the addresses to which real estate tax statements are sent, as maintained by county officials, for such notices.  Such notice shall be given by first-class mail unless the notice is returned undelivered, in which case a further notice shall be given by certified mail.  Further notice shall be published once each week for three consecutive weeks in the official newspaper of the county in which such trail is proposed to be located.

(b) Before commencing development or operation of a recreational trail, the responsible party shall:

(1) Prepare a project plan that includes: (A) The name and address of the responsible party, (B) an itemized estimate of the costs of the project and sources of funding for the project, and (C) maps of the recreational trail;

(2) submit by certified mail, not later than 180 days after receiving approval of interim trail use from the appropriate federal agency, the initial project plan to the county commission of each county where a portion of the trail is to be located outside of city limits and to the governing body of each city where a portion of the trail is to be located inside the city limits;

(3) submit the final project plan to the county commission of each county where a portion of the trail is to be located outside of city limits and make subsequent reports to such county commission as to the status of trail development or operation, or both, at intervals determined by the commission and consider all recommendations the commission has regarding the trail; and

(4) submit the final project plan to the governing body of each city where a portion of the trail is to be located inside the city limits and make subsequent reports to such city governing body as to the status of trail development or operation, or both, at intervals determined by the governing body and consider all recommendations the governing body has regarding the trail.

(c) The responsible party shall complete development of a recreational trail within a period of time equal to two years times the number of counties in which the recreational trail is located.  Such period of time shall begin only when the appeal period pursuant to  subsection (d) of 16 U.S.C. 1247 (1983) has expired.  Any time during which there is pending any court action challenging the development or use of the trail shall not be computed as part of the time limitation imposed by this subsection.

(d) The provisions of this section shall apply to only recreational trails for which approval to enter into negotiations for interim trail use is received from the appropriate federal agency on or after the effective date of this act.
