Local Motion is pleased to partner with Shelburne residents who are seeking to construct a primitive (unpaved) path on public, town-owned land between Shelburne Heights and Boulder Hill. The path would run entirely on public land and would be constructed by volunteers at no cost to the town or to taxpayers.
THE OPPORTUNITY: A path from Shelburne Heights to Boulder Hill will give a major new section of Shelburne a walking and biking route to the village. Shelburne Heights residents will be able to get to the Webster Road path without having to walk or bike on Spear Street. This will benefit a large number of families and kids, promoting physical activity and connecting them to the village.
CURRENT STATUS: The path has been formally proposed to the Town. The selectboard is now considering the proposal. It is crucial that they see that there is community support. (Note that the photo above is an example of the type of path that would be built; it is not a photo of the path itself, as no construction has occurred yet.)
THE NEXT STEP: Document support from neighbors. Click the red button above to endorse the construction of a path from Shelburne Heights to Boulder Hill.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This path will NOT be located in or near any wetlands. It runs entirely through upland forest. Click the button below for a map showing the location of wetlands relative to the proposed path location.
