March 7th on your calender, and come get up to speed on what the future holds on multi-user trails and paths in Northampton, MA.
From the Friends of Northampton Trails and Greenways, FNTG, comes news of a presentation by Northampton’s city planner, Wayne Feiden, they are sponsoring on the future plans for bike trail development in the Northampton, MA area.
Wayne Feiden, Director of the City of Northampton Office of Planning and Development will be discussing the future of the growing network of rail trails and other connections in Northampton and surrounding communities. Despite the heavy snow this year, many of these trails are plowed, open and accessible, and we look forward to hearing about plans to extend and augment these trails.
The meeting takes place
Monday, March 7th at the Northampton Friends Meetinghouse (43 Center Street, 2nd floor). This is the old Elks Building (huge white pillars) in downtown Northampton, just at the junction of Masonic Street and Center Street.
The evening will include refreshments and time to get to know other rail trail enthusiasts. If you want to know what happening with cycling trails, where they are planned for, and when they are expected to be rideable, this is your chance to get the information from the source.
Don’t miss it.
Update: The refreshments and visiting begin at 6:45 p.m. Talk by Wayne Feiden set to begin at 7:30 p.m. Thanks for pointing out in the comments that I forgot to include this information!
