Join us for our final public meeting about the Chester Valley Trail West study on November 7 at Gateway Church, located at 160 Cowan Road in Parkesburg. There will be an open house from 6:30-7:30 p.m. where attendees can view and comment on materials from the draft plan, and at 7:30 p.m. the Planning Commission will present the highlights of the draft plan and recommendations. Register for the meeting.
The topics for discussion will include:
- The vision for this trail and how it fits into the larger network;
- The recommended alignment for the Chester Valley Trail West; and
- How this 21-mile planned trail system could be built over time.
The goal of this study is to identify a route by which to extend the Chester Valley Trail to connect with the future 29-mile multi-use Enola Low Grade Trail located just outside of Atglen in Lancaster County. The Chester Valley Trail West project includes eight municipalities: Caln, Downingtown, Coatesville, Valley, Parkesburg, Sadsbury, West Sadsbury, and Atglen.
The Chester Valley Trail West project, when built, will serve as a link in a proposed continuous multi-use trail network between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. The trail will connect with the Enola Low Grade Trail and the Northwest Lancaster River Trail to the west and the Schuylkill River Trail to the east.
