To the Editor;
Thank you for your coverage on Bike Path progress dated Feb 29. It’s important to note that the Friends of Mattapoisett Bike Path are writing grants for Phase 2B in the context of a Town project to upgrade Industrial Drive and a privately funded project to expand sewer service there.
There will be a public meeting March 18, 6:30 pm at Center School to review design of the entire project, which supports smart development (development on previously developed parcels and healthy transportation options)
Friends are assisting with grant writing for three grants. Design is ongoing, overseen by the Town. A grant (written by SRPEDD) for road, intersection and drainage construction has been received. Construction on bike path will only proceed if construction grants for that work are received.
