Award Description: The purpose of this grant is to construct Phase 2 of the Rails to Trails Project which is also part of the Master Plan for the Heritage Neighborhood Community Center complex. When completed the trail will provide direct pedestrian and bicycle connection from one side of town to the other, especially to the industrial employment centers and major commercial centers. This is a direct investment in transportation infrastructure which will protect the environment as citizens will be encouraged to utilize the Rails to Trails path instead of driving cars to their designations. Naturally, other signficant outcomes will be to reduce pollution emissions, promote energy conservation, and provide health benefits to citizens. 12-15 construction and temporary jobs are planned to be created during construction .
