Our Fairhaven Park Trail and Wetland Boardwalk project is a community effort. Our role as the stewards of this special piece of property is currently wrapped up in our planning, permitting and planning phases. Yes, lots of planning. We are fortunate to have a highly skilled and dedicated Trail Team on this project.
This morning I got to spend time with two of them- Josh and Gerry. We walked the next trail alignment and talk about the specifics of the trail and wetland boardwalk. I enjoy this time outside with them both. The level of detail and professionalism in the field is always and education for me. I serve as project manager pulling the minds of these great people together to make for a rewarding project.
Thanks to these two and the community at large, we’re getting this done! Below, Josh is pointing to the future!! This is one of the other cool projects that Josh is working on with Eric and WMBC: Want to try mountain biking?…
