Bike Trail Development Discussion Announced

Exciting things are happening for bike trail development in Western Massachusetts.

Further Update: The date has been changed again to Monday, April 25, same time and place.

Update: Because both this event, sponsored by FNTG, and the public meeting on the I-91 Exit 19 changes ,(see above) were scheduled on the same evening, FTNG has changed the date of its meeting:

We’ve changed the date for the Friends of Northampton Trails and Greenways meeting (Wayne Feiden lecture on the future of the local trail network) to Monday, April 18th at 7:00pm at the Friends Meetinghouse (43 Center Street, Northampton). I hope that people can make it to both the I-91 and FNTG events!

Nick Horton, for FNTG [updated March 2, 2011. Emphasis added.]

Mark 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!
