The first public meeting will share the work done to date and measure public support. The study hopes to identify existing and potential trail users. Local issues will be identified and addressed.

The Council would appreciate comments regarding the future of this historic rail-trail and hopes you can attend. Any questions or concerns, please call the RTC office at 570-679-9300 or e-mail
