PEC seeking public comment for Wilkes-Barre Trail Master Plan Project

The City of Wilkes-Barre in Partnership with the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and the Anthracite Scenic Trails Association is preparing a Trail/Greenway Master Plan for a city-wide trail/greenway system.

The Partnership is seeking public comment on the final draft map of the potential alignment for the trail/greenway system. A brief survey and map are available for viewing at the following two locations within the City of Wilkes-Barre:

40 West Northhampton Street,  Wilkes-Barre

Barnes and Noble
7 South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre

Anyone who is interested in seeing the map and providing survey input is encouraged to visit the locations listed above.

The map and surveys will be available for two weeks from Monday, February 1, 2010 until Monday, February 15, 2010.

The Trail/Greenway will not only spur eco-tourism opportunities for the region but will provide free accessible walking and bicycling opportunities within the City of Wilkes-Barre.
