*Thanks to the generously donated efforts of Ashley Romeo-Boles at the law firm of Schuster, Buttrey and Wing, the railroad and State DOT have joined the City in filing for official Abandonment and Discontinuation of the remaining section of the Greenway. The 7 pound document has been sent to Washington; when approved by the Federal Government, we will have permission to move forward with the remaining construction.
*Construction of rails on the Slayton Hill Bridge is scheduled for July with a plan to improve access from the trail to the APD parking lot. City Engineering staff will help complete work on the bridge in downtown Lebanon near A.B.Gile.
*The Jane McLaughlin Foundation offered the MRG a matching grant. If we could raise $50,000 from individual donors, the foundation would donate $200,000, a 4 to 1 match. We are within $2,300 of meeting the $50,000 match. If you have intended to make a donation to the Mascoma River Greenway, now is the time – you could help secure that match.
