Here's your only chance to be heard by Maine DOT's Rail Corridor Advisory Council and to show your support for the next phase of the Mountain Division Trail on the 30-mile section from Standish to Fryeburg.
MDOT will be taking public comment in writing and in person this coming Thursday, March 31st at 6 PM.
A vast majority of Mainers — 86% — support repurposing unused rail corridors as trails. This support hold true regardless of age, geography, or political party.
Trails connect communities and bring a wide range of health, economic, and environmental benefits.
If you live locally, you can focus on how you would use this trail and what it would mean to your community.
If you don’t live locally, aim to keep your remarks to one minute and share some of the benefits you believe this project will bring.
