If you are not aware the Town of Swanzey's Rail Trail Advisory Committee has been busy with improving the Ashuelot and Cheshire Rail Trails. Activities include trail cleanup events, regular maintenance (mowing, drainage clearing, tree removal), and fundraising. The RTAC has secured a Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) grant which will bring the trails up to a standard that will make the trails usage by walkers, bikers, and runners of all ages. This all cannot be done without the help of resident volunteers. The RTAC is looking to add a couple of alternate committee members which will bring increased diversity as well as more capacity to the group.
If you think you might be interested you are welcome to join an RTAC meeting to meet the current members and get a feel for the work of the committee (see https://www.swanzeynh.gov/calendar.php). Also you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the town hall, (603) 352-7411.
