NORWICH – For years, The Chenango Greenway Conservancy, Inc. has been dedicated to constructing a recreational trail along the Chenango River. The group is now applying for a recreational trails grant that would allow them the funding to do something about it.
The CGC was formed in the 1990s, but this year they decided to change things a little. “This spring, we decided to go for it as a non-profit organization,” said CGC secretary Sharon Pelosi. According to Pelosi, this change allowed the group to explore more funding options, like applying for grants. “We are applying for a recreational trails grant, for money to design and build a portion of the trail,” Pelosi explained.” Plans for the trail have it beginning in the northern part of the city, stretching over six miles of river bank, and ending in the Jamba Flats area south of the city.
