PLAINVILLE - The Farmington Canal Heritage Trail Steering Committee is thanking residents for attending the gap closure public meeting, which it called a success.
More than 150 people attended the collaborative public workshop in Plainville on Oct. 18 for the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail Gap Closure project. They provided feedback on the preliminary preferred alignment to close the gap in the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail in Plainville and to connect with the CTfastrak station in New Britain.
At the meeting, members of the public were encouraged to visit five stations, which represented background information on the project and sections of the trail’s preferred alignment, and to talk to project staff and Steering Committee members about what the trail would look like and how it would connect with activity centers.
A presentation was made, followed by a question-and-answer period.
Afterward, the meeting returned to conversations at the five stations, where additional public feedback was provided.
Materials from the meeting, as well as a meeting summary, can be found on the project website at gapclosurestudy.com. The project’s existing conditions report has been posted to the website as well. There is also an online form on which residents can provide comments.
