Central CT Loop Trail Public Workshop — Monday, June 10

We urge the public to attend a special workshop on the route study for the Central CT Loop Trail segment from Portland to Cheshire, conducted by engineering firm VHB. The event will be held in the Council Chambers of Middletown’s City Hall on Monday, June 10, 7 – 8:30 p.m., beginning with a formal presentation and followed by questions and comments from the public.

Documents related to this study can be viewed here.

Connecting the Air Line Trail to the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail is a project undertaken by the Jonah Center in November 2013. After years of advocacy, and with the help of Senator Matt Lesser and the RiverCOG’s Executive Director, Sam Gold, the project has gained the support of the Connecticut General  Assembly, Governor Lamont and the State Bond Commission, and the CT Department of Transportation.

Still, the project is ambitious and faces many challenges. We need citizens who support a network of trails to connect towns, places of work, schools, housing, public transportation, and commercial centers to come to this meeting and show their support.
