Work continues on plans to extend the Still River Greenway to New Milford.  Committee chair Jay Annis recently gave an update to the Brookfield Board of Selectmen on their activities and plans.  The group is meeting with Brookfield Town Center for Business Committee.  One of the challenges will be determining how and where to cross the Four Corners.  Annis says any way you look at it--it presents issues.  He hopes an engineer can help work out some of the details.  Another challenge will be obtaining easement from Riverview Condominiums.  Without an easement there will be a hole in the route north.  The committee has received more than 400 responses to a survey about trail usage.  Most were from people age 35-64.  The use the trail is almost evenly divided between people who go two to three times a week, or two to three times a month.  The majority of respondents said they spend half an hour to an hour on the Greenway.  Only a handful said they walk to the Greenway, while the overwhelming answer was that people drive there and park.
