The Naugatuck River Greenway Thomaston to Torrington Routing Feasibility Study Report was endorsed by the Northwest Hills COG Board on December 10, 2020, by the NVCOG Board on May 8, 2020, and by the Naugatuck River Greenway Steering Committee on May 13, 2020.
Where should the Naugatuck River Greenway (NRG) Trail be developed between Torrington and Thomaston?
The NRG Trail Thomaston to Torrington Routing Feasibility Study was conducted to answer that question. In 2018 and 2019, study partners investigated environmental conditions and potential trail route options throughout the corridor, and talked with stakeholders and the public to help determine a preferred route for the NRG trail. The goal of the study was to identify a single preferred route for the NRG Trail through field investigation and public and stakeholder engagement, and to develop project phasing with cost estimates in preparation for future funding opportunities.
