Local Motion is pleased to have partnered with Shelburne residents to win selectboard permission for a primitive (unpaved) path on public, town-owned land between Shelburne Heights and Boulder Hill. The path—which is now being built—runs entirely on public land and is being 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 was approved 5-0 by the selectboard on September 27, 2016. Volunteers are now moving ahead with path construction. (Note that the photo above is an example of the type of path that is being built; it is not a photo of the path itself.)
THE NEXT STEP: Add your name, then sign up for a trail workday! Click the red button above to endorse the construction of a path from Shelburne Heights to Boulder Hill, then email or call Mike Ashooh (see below) to volunteer. The next trail workday is Saturday, October 15 from 10 to 2.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This path is NOT 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 path location.
