Danbury studying multi-use trail connection to Maybrook Trailway

Danbury is looking to do a feasibility study for a multi-use trail connecting the existing Maybrook Trailway in Putnam County through the city to the existing Ives Trail in Tarrywile Park.  The Department of Planning and Zoning has identified a potential funding opportunity from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection's Recreational Trails Grant Program.  The Maybrook Trailway currently ends at the state line.  The study will determine the appropriate route and uses for the trail.  Planning Director Sharon Calitro says extending the trail would provide recreational access and activities for residents and visitors in the region and beyond.  The study is 50-thousand dollars, with the grant covering 80-percent of the cost.  The local match is 10-thousand dollars.
