Rail Trail Committee meeting Dec 11, 2012 - 7:00 PM

The Franklin and Bellingham Rail Trail Committee (FBRTC) will hold its annual meeting tomorrow evening, Tuesday, December 11, 2012. The meeting will begin at 7:30 pm and will be held at the YMCA in Franklin. This meeting will serve as the FBRTC's annual meeting and we will be electing officers for 2013. If you are interested in serving in this capacity, please respond to this email or contact Marc Kaplan (mkap7@hotmail.com) or David Labonte (david.labonte@verizon.net)

Other items we will discuss at this meeting include: motorized vehicle usage on the trail, a map of the trail in Franklin and Bellingham, potential grant projects, and the developments with the Town of Franklin related to the Prospect St crossing. Attached is an agenda. We need your help with these projects, so please consider attending tomorrow.

Also, last Sunday a group of students from Dean College's Outdoor Recreation Club volunteered to staff an information table at the trail head on Grove St. For a few hours, students took a count of the number of users/visitors to the trail and the type (walker, biker, etc). This could become an ongoing project for the club starting in the spring. While it is unscientific study, it will help give us an idea of the utilization of the trail and help get the word out about the committee and trail efforts. Attached is a picture from last Sunday.

We look forward to your participation and input tomorrow and in 2013.
