Island trail system takes step forward

This week the Jamestown Town Council gave the green light for work to begin on development of a mid-island walking trail network.

The trail system has been made possible by easements that were recently made available to the town on the Dutra and Neale farms. Plans call for the north to south trail through the farms to extend through the Great Creek marsh to link with the walking trail in the Conanicut Island Sanctuary. The town has a $50,000 grant to aid in the development of the trail network.

We've long talked about such a trail network in Jamestown. Islanders have volunteered to help with the project and the money is available. Let's roll up our sleeves and get to work!
