CVT West Meeting Highlights Bike Chester County

Chester County Planning Commission (CCPC) recently held its final meeting on the Chester Valley Trail (CVT) West project in Parkesburg. A major highlight of the meeting was CCPC acknowledging the long timeline for completion of the trail, and its dedication to create an interim 0n-road connection between Downingtown and Atglen, where the CVT will eventually connect with the existing Enola Low-Grade Trail in Lancaster County.

As reported in the blog of Bicycle Coalition affiliate group Bike Chester County, our members were recruited to “ground truth” a possible on-road connection, which we did in July.

It was exciting to see the work of our members make its way into the official CVT West Plan. Thanks to our dedicated Bike Chester County committee for helping to improve suburban bikeability!

Per Rachael Griffith of CCPC:
“The Chester Valley Trail West Feasibility Study is drawing to a close, but there is still time to provide feedback on the Draft report! The Draft report and comment form can be accessed on the project website. Comments will be accepted until 5 pm on Friday, 12/7.

Want to learn more about the great work BCC has done over the past year and what we’ve got coming in 2019, come out to our Supporter Social on December 4th!
