On Wednesday, December 19th at the Library’s Levenson Room at 6:30 p.m., the City will host a kick-off public input session to discuss a potential North Mill Pond trail project. The purpose of this project would be to design a linear greenway and community park along the North Mill Pond. The greenway would include a multi-use path for use by bicycles and pedestrians extending from Bartlett Street to Market Street with a brief on-road portion along Maplewood Avenue.
The initial goals of this meeting will be to provide more details to the community on the conceptual design for a multi-use path, how it fits along Bartlett and Market Streets, and receive input from abutters and other interested residents. In addition to the multi-use path, the greenway will include a one-acre community park between Maplewood Avenue and Market Street, accessible from Vaughan Street via a public access easement across private property. With the exception of the one-acre community park, all of the land in the proposed linear greenway is currently owned by private entities and will require land easements or acquisition by the City. For this reason, the construction of this greenway and park is anticipated to be done as a public/private partnership.
