Greetings from the H&F Trolley Trail Association!
We hope you are enjoying the start of spring and, with it, warmer weather. It is a perfect time of the year to enjoy the trail and all that our community has to offer. The HFTTA has had a busy start to 2019 and we have high hopes that much will be achieved in the coming year.
The highlight of the last quarter was the presentation that the HFTTA gave to the Commissioners of Thurmont and the public outlining the plans for the extensions of the existing trail. The HFTTA presented its plans for a desired trail alignment at the March 5, 2019 Thurmont town meeting. The Commissioners were overwhelmingly positive in their support for the extensions to the trail. The HFTTA is optimistic for the completion of the trail given the support from the town of Thurmont and the community. Kudos to the team from the HFTTA who undertook the task of bringing this together and presenting it to the town. There was much effort involved with this presentation and we at the HFTTA couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. You can watch the video of the meeting here: https://www.hftrolley.org/news-and-projects.html
There were some action items from the meeting with the town which have to do with confirming the trail alignment and addressing property issues arising from the trail’s desired placement. Managing the many moving parts of the plan as we proceed will be a challenge, but the dream of a trail connecting our community is a worthwhile challenge which cannot be realized without the support of our neighbors. Your continued support is appreciated!
As the HFTTA looks ahead to the rest of 2019, we will concentrate our efforts at raising awareness of the plans for the trail. Also, as the plans for the trail become clearer and tangible goals are established we will begin fundraising to help to meet those goals.
