The Economic Development Commission and the Board of Selectmen partnered to investigate options for a multi use trail within New Hartford and created a Rails to Trails subcommittee. The town engaged the services of Milone & MacBroom to prepare a feasibility study of options for a trail in the Satans Kingdom area of New Hartford. Application was made to the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation for a Road Safety Audit which was performed along Route 44 to determine the opportunities and challenges for a trail from the Center of town towards Satans Kingdom. This group met several times to brainstorm ideas for possible multi use trails in these areas.
Recently, the Board of Selectmen expanded the membership of this committee and changed the name to the Trails Committee.
Meeting agendas will be posted as "Trails Committee" and the public is always welcome to attend meetings.
The Town welcomes any comments, suggestions or ideas. Call First Selectman Jerram at 860-379-3389 with your thoughts.
