Schoharie Creek Trail Study Public Meeting
Wednesday, December 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
St. Mark’s Lutheran Church
326 Main Street, Middleburgh NY
Since the first Public Information meeting held at the end of May 2017, the Trail Study design team has been refining the trail system based on feedback received, developing cost estimates, and investigating environmental and constructability impacts for the approximately 38-mile Schoharie Creek Trail system, as well as investigating future grant funding opportunities. During the summer of 2017, a Consolidated Funding Application for $400,000 was applied to for a trail linkage in the Town of Middleburgh which was identified in this study.
Join us on December 6, for a Second Public Meeting to examine the trail system before the final report and cost estimates are prepared. Following this meeting the Trail Feasibility Report will be finalized with the Department of State. Completion and filing of this report is an important process for securing addition grant funding. In the report, trail segment construction will be prioritized. The sections that are most likely to receive future funding based upon several factors, including cost, environmental, connections to the community, and right of way, will be prioritized for construction first. The final report will serve as a guide to aid in applying for future funding applications.
