Trail Feasibility Study Updates
Thank you to those of you who were able to join us last week! For those who could not make it, we’ll be having another Trail Feasibility Study Community meeting in Esperance on Monday, March 14th at 7pm at the Esperance-Sloansville United Methodist Church 175 Main St, Esperance, NY 12066.
SALT has partnered with SUNY Albany planning graduate students for the first part of the Study – the Conceptual or Vision Plan . This Plan along with guidance from NYS Department of State and Schoharie County Planning & Development as well as others, will advise SALT in facilitating the Trail Feasibility Study.
Curious about Next Steps?
April 2016: SALT will form a Project Advisory Committee, which will consist of a diverse range of stakeholders, for the Trail Feasibility Study.
May 2016: SUNY Albany planning graduate students will present their Vision Plan for the trail to SALT and the community. The Project Advisory Committee will issue a Request For Proposal.
August 2016: The Project Advisory Committee will select Consultants. The Consultants will analyze greenways, blueways, amenities (benches, parking lots, etc.), cost estimates, agricultural, commercial, historic and recreational areas, and alternative trail alignments to name a few.
June 2017: The Consultants will schedule a public presentation on their findings.
December 2017: The Final Feasibility Study will be completed.
