Description

Along the East bank of the Mill River between State Street and Humphrey Street along the Western property line of the old CT Transit site lies a great trail opportunity with little upfront cost to tax-payers.

Readying this connection for a trail will pave the way for recreational access between East Rock Park and Grand Avenue.

We have spoken with City Plan and City Engineering and it appears that this is a reasonable request and use for the river shores.

We have also spoken to State Representative Roland Lemar who supports the project and believes that with interest from resident's demonstrated we can get a trail funded here.

If you would use this area recreationally or would like to see this trail created please vote up this issue and share it with neighbors. As organizers we would like to see that there is real interest(50 or more votes might convince us :) from the community before we organize to push the issue to the State.

If you have thoughts in support or opposition please add them in the comments!

Let's make the Mill River something New Haven can be proud of again.
