    WHY WE NEED TRAILS:

    Accessibility
    Connecting pathways county wide provides safe commuting routes for industrial employees, low income neighborhoods,  and children to schools, parks, work and other resources in town, and for tourists to local attractions, restaurants and shops.

     

    Healthy living
    Trails provide safe routes for various forms of exercise, including walking, jogging and biking. This increases quality of life and reduces health care costs.

     

    Community enhancement
    Community gardens, parks, and other green spaces often originate from existing or new trails, improving the entire community.
     

    Environmental clean-up
    Trails provide an opportunity to improve waterways, remove invasive species, and raise awareness about the importance of environmental stewardship and conservation.

     

    Economic Impact
    Trails lead to development of special events, more visitors, higher property values and tax revenues, as well as development of under-utilized areas.

     

    Education
    Trails provide space for outdoor classrooms, science camps, and exercise classes.
