WANTED: Ideas For the Trail; Meeting on Saturday, March 2

Ideas and suggestions for the Northern Strand Community Trail will be discussed at a meeting on Saturday, March 2 at the Linden School, 29 Wescott St., Malden, Mass.

Anyone who has ideas for beautifying the trail or creating programs and events around it are encouraged to attend the meeting which starts at 9 a.m and ends at 1 p.m. Refreshments will be available at 8:30 a.m.

Malden City Councillors Judith Bucci and Barbara Murphy will attend as will officers of Bike to the Sea. The purpose of the meeting is to come up with plans to improve the trail and to identify community partners that can help with those plans.

The Northern Strand Community Trail runs from Everett, through Malden, Revere, Saugus, and Lynn to Nahant Beach. The Everett, Malden and Saugus portions are complete. Work on the Revere portion of the trail is expected to begin in the spring or summer of 2013. The City of Lynn still needs to approve plans for the trail.
