The products are an interactive online regional trail map, a Regional Trail Map and Connectivity Assessment Report (see the high-resolution Regional Trail Map here), Regional Trail Master Spreadsheet, and a Regional Trail Maps of Current and Proposed Trail Networks. Comments on the Regional Trail Maps and Connectivity Assessment Report, including any proposed refinements, are welcome. Please contact Rick Lynn at rlynn [at] northwesthillscog.org or 860-491-9884.
Regional Transportation Plan (2016)
The Northwest Hills Council of Governments developed a new Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) to guide future transportation decisions in the 21 town region. The RTP recommends a list of projects and priorities for travel improvements throughout the region. It considers all means of travel including automobile, transit, walking and bicycle. In addition to input from municipalities in the region, the vision and priorities were shaped by a program of stakeholder input, such as several public forums and an online survey. Information reflects the unique conditions of the Northwest Hills Region.
Road Supervisors Meeting
Several times a year, road supervisors meet informally to discuss important issues such as equipment or material purchasing, road maintenance, safety concerns, etc.
