A Call to Action! Come Support Us at the Town Meeting on Tuesday, January 31 at the Litchfield Intermediate School at 7:00pm
Thank you for your past support of the Litchfield Community Greenway. Because of friends like you, we have made great strides in the eight years since the opening of the first phase of the Greenway. The trail now extends more than two miles all the way to North Shore Road and will soon include a stretch from the current trailhead at South Lake Street to the old train station on Russell Street which has been renovated by our friends at the Litchfield Land Trust. We all deeply appreciate the support from those in the community like you who see value in the work of both organizations.
We come to you with an important request. The Town of Litchfield Board of Selectmen has allocated some of the Federal ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) funds that have been awarded to Litchfield to the Greenway and to the Land Trust. Those allocations—$100,000 for the Land Trust and $60,000 for the Greenway—have been approved by the Litchfield Board of Finance and will now go to a Town Meeting for approval by the voters. These funds will go a long way toward both organizations being able to move forward with their plans.
PLEASE COME AND SUPPORT US IN PERSON
A Town Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 31 at the Litchfield Intermediate School at 7:00 PM and it is important that residents like you who support the Greenway and the Land Trust come to the meeting to vote in support of these grants. A great show of support will be an important vote of confidence.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
