MEETING AGENDA

MEETING NOTES

The video recording of this meeting is available on the NVCOG YouTube Channel.

This meeting will focus on updating the NRG Trail Priorities planning document first developed in 2015.  Updated priorities will help guide the development of the NRG Trail over the coming years, and help communities make stronger requests for funding of trail sections.

Staff has developed an updated NRG Sections Status MAP* and SPREADSHEET that will be referenced during the priorities discussion.  Please review prior to the meeting and send any edits or changes to abudris@nvcogct.gov.

 

The NRG Steering Committee has previously discussed using the following criteria to identify regional trail section priorities:

  • A trail section that connects two complete or soon to be complete sections of NRG Trail, or;
  • A trail section that connects a complete or soon to be complete section of NRG trail with an important destination or population center, or;
  • A section that requires little investment or effort to complete (low-hanging fruit)

 

Using those criteria, staff has compiled a list of potential priorities going forward (see map and spreadsheet above for details):

  • TORR-2 (East Main Street/ Franklin to East Albert Street) – Connecting completed trail to Downtown Torrington.
  • LITC/HARW-3 (Campville Hill Road to Wildcat Hill Road) – Shared roadway concept presented in Thomaston to Torrington Routing Study can be completed with very little investment.
  • WTTN-1 (Branch Brook Road to Frost Bridge Road) – Connecting to trail designed in Thomaston. Was previously seen as low hanging fruit.
  • WTBY-3 (West Main Street to Eagle Street) – Connecting Downtown to section under construction.
  • NAUG-1 (Naugatuck River Access Park to Pulaski Bridge) – Connecting completed section in Naugatuck to Waterbury Phase I under construction.
  • BEAC-3 (Route 42 to Toby’s Pond) – Connects completed section in Beacon Falls to trails at Toby’s Pond
  • SEYM-1/BEAC-5 (Toby’s Pond to Bank Street) – Connects Toby’s Pond to completed section in Seymour

 

*Map Note* – When zoomed out beyond the town level, the map displays generalized NRG Route Sections that correspond to the sections in the spreadsheet (and in the 2015 NRG Priorities document).  Zooming in beyond the town level, the map will display a NRG Trail Segment layer with more specific information about individual segments of trail within trail sections.
