WestCOG, the regional planning agency for towns from Sherman down to Stamford, has hosted the Newtown Bike and Trail Committee. The Committee, led by Brid Cradock, will be counting uses of the Fairfield Hills walking trail, starting in the spring and continuing throughout the year. Representatives from Newtown Parks and Rec and Newtown Land Use attended the meeting. Methodology, calibration, data compilation, placement of trail counters, trail surveys, and other topics were discussed. Members of the Connecticut Trail Census shared hints and offered help to organize the effort. WestCOG and CT Trail Census will continue to provide technical support for this project.
