Bristol, Conn. —The Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments (NVCOG) will hold a community walk audit on Thursday, April 20 at 4:00 p.m. as a part of the Bristol Trail Study. The walk will begin at Brackett Park located at 120 School St. and will take residents between West St. and Main St.

The Trail Study, done in collaboration with the City of Bristol, involves looking at routing options to provide a safe, continuous connection between Rockwell Park in the west to Downtown, continuing east to Route 229. The walk audit will be held to assess and collect community feedback on a section of the proposed trail that has no evident alignment. The information gathered will be used to inform routing decisions.

A public meeting was held on Wednesday March 8 to gather feedback and answer questions from the public about the study and the proposed trail alignment under consideration. Residents can still provide feedback through a community survey developed by NVCOG and the City. To access the survey, type into the web browser on your computer or smartphone.

If you have any questions, please contact Elliot Wareham, Transportation Planner, at or 203-489-0514.
