New Milford is in the process of building a sidewalk that connects the current end of the Riverwalk on Youngsfield Road up Patriots Way and into the downtown. Mayor Pete Bass says this will provide walking or jogging connectivity from the downtown to the River. Tree trimming work and parking lot paving will also be done as part of Phase Two. Phase Three work includes putting down a stone dust trail in Native Meadows to connect to the Veterans Bridge sidewalks. This will lead to connectivity from Native Meadows to the downtown.
