Philo to Champlain Path: Charlotte Seeking Consultant

PhilotoChamp.jpgThose who love Charlotte, whether they call it home or just a beautiful place to visit, have long dreamed of a walking and biking path that would connect Mt. Philo and Lake Champlain. And now, this dream is moving another step close to becoming reality. The Town of Charlotte is seeking qualified firms to provide planning services to identify issues associated with possible construction of this path connecting the two most popular destinations in Charlotte...

The Town seeks to scope two sections that would extend the completed portion of the path on both ends to two important destination points: Mount Philo State Park (to the southeast), and the west Charlotte village (to the north). The scoping work would look at 1) connecting Mount Philo State Park to the southerly end of the Melissa and Trevor Mack Trail via a bicycle/pedestrian facility along State Park Rd. (approximately .5 miles), and 2) connecting the northerly end of the Co-housing Section to the west Charlotte village via a new multi-use path (approximately 1.5 miles).
