(The State is running the project; Town as a partner.) This project was first discussed in 2012 as a larger project that has been whittled down to a bike trail extension. The site survey is complete and some conceptual design work may be available for review within the next month.

Permitting has been completed and an application for grant funding has been submitted and we are awaiting word.
Long Pond Landing: Initial design phase for boat ramp reconstruction at Long Pond Landing (off Crowell’s Bog Road) is underway.
