AGENDA
LEBANON CITY COUNCIL

Council Chambers  –  Lebanon City Hall
MARCH 6, 2019 – Meeting begins at 7:00 pm
NEW BUSINESS:
PRESENTATION BY THAYER SCHOOL STUDENTS:
OPTIONS TO EXTEND THE MASCOMA RIVER GREENWAY TO WHITE RIVER JUNCTION
BACKGROUND
The original Mascoma River Greenway Action Plan envisions a non-motorized year-round bicycle and pedestrian trail connecting downtown Lebanon to downtown West Lebanon, and ultimately to the Lyman Bridge’s connection to Vermont. The July 2018 opening provides the first segment of this multi-use path from High Street to Glen Road. The combination of NH DOT’s unwillingness to allow access to the remaining 2000 feet of rail to Riverside Community Park, and the delay of the Iron Horse Commercial Park development has left us stranded at Glen Road.
Dick Mackay from the Friends of the Northern Rail Trail took the initiative of partnering with the Thayer School of Engineering with the hopes that fresh eyes on the project might produce alternatives for us to consider. Project Team 17 from the Thayer School of Engineering, Cook Engineering Design Center, hasbeen the team working with the Friends of the Northern Rail Trail to produce a feasibility report
for the MRG extension to the Lyman Bridge. The team members are: Sebastian Strong, Isalys Quinones, Eleanor Dowd, Sarah Atac, and David Ruiz.
ACTION
No action is required by the Council; informational presentation only.
