An Integrated Trail Plan for Chester

chestertrails.org

Chester Township and Chester Borough collaborated to develop a plan for a walking/biking trail ecosystem that will connect significant open space, environmental, cultural and historic features in the two municipalities. The project was carried out by Conservation Resources and a project team (PT) comprised of representatives of the environmental commissions, open space committees and historic committees of the two towns.

The PT conducted public outreach activities to inform officials, residents and stakeholders about the trails project and solicit their input. Conservation Resources helped design and participate in all public presentations related to the project and provided advice and recommendations on potential follow-up actions to implement the plan.

The environmental commissions presented the final trails plan to their respective planning boards with a recommendation for adoption and incorporation into the municipal master plans.
