After nearly twenty long years of feasibility studies, grant-writing, and securing of approvals, the end is finally in sight! Our community now has the first 2.8 mile phase of a beautiful paved trail that we can enjoy for cycling, running, and strolling. Construction is now essentially complete as of December 2016, with just some finishing touches (and a ribbon cutting) scheduled for the spring of 2017. Simultaneously, planning work continues on later phases of the project.
We need your help. Please “like” us on Facebook, share the news about the trail’s progress, join us at upcoming volunteer events, and support your trail financially. While federal, state, and foundation money is often available for design and construction, Friends of Chester Creek will continue to assist with maintenance and other administrative costs. For example, in 2014, we incurred over $13,000 in engineering and legal bills during the final approval phases, and there are no grants available for these kinds of expenses.
