The Camden County Freeholder Board’s Division of Environmental Affairs will hold its final public input session to solicit feedback from Camden County citizens, commuters, and visitors regarding the formation of a multi-use trail spanning from the Camden waterfront to the Atlantic County line.
“The trail network will provide residents with new recreational opportunities, while creating an alternative means of transportation between destinations such as schools, shopping, parks and recreation facilities,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Division of Environmental Affairs. “The Freeholder Board has made advocating and implementing more trails and alternative means of transportation throughout the region a priority. This public policy initiative is another opportunity for residents to get out of their cars and onto a bike. Whether it’s a daily commute to work or riding for recreation, these trails provide a sustainable two-wheel option for residents.”
The meeting will be held in the format of an open house, with residents welcome to come and go at any time to view maps of the county’s preferred trail alignment, and comment on the various alternatives being reviewed. The preferred alignment is the result of several months of study by consultants in cooperation with the county and other members of the review team. There will be a brief presentation regarding the project at 6:30 p.m. given by members of the project’s consultant firm, NV5.
