Join the first Public Forum for the Belmont Community Path Phase 2 project.
At this presentation and listening session, the Belmont Community Path Project Committee and consultant team from Pare Corporation will provide a brief overview of the project, a summary of the community input received thus far, and project work to date, including the draft route recommendation. The public’s input at this meeting will provide guidance for the development of the project.
Belmont has retained Pare Corporation and Toole Design to recommend the ﬁnal alignment and to design Phase 2 which will connect from the Clark Street bridge to the Waltham city line with a linear trail and park.
The Belmont Community Path is a generational off-road, multi-use path that will provide recreational opportunities and a safe, walkable, and bikeable route to cultural, economic, and social anchors. It will also serve as a critical piece of the Mass Central Rail Trail (MCRT) which will connect Boston and Northampton.
The forum is taking place on Thursday, May 18 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. It will be a hybrid meeting
