May 17, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The first public meeting on design work for the Northern Strand Community Trail will be held on Thursday, May 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Malden Senior Center, 7 Washington St. in Malden.

The public is encouraged to come and share ideas on how to make improvements to the trail.

In February the state announced it would award $1.5 million for design work, which includes design improvements for sections of the trail already open, as well as the long sought extension through Lynn. The funding will also be used to extend it in Everett through the Wynn Casino property where it will eventually connect to trails heading into Boston.

The Malden meeting is being billed as a “listening session” where city and state officials and members of the landscape/architect company, Brown, Richardson and Rowe, will hear from residents about their ideas on improving street crossings; creating wayfinding signs; and providing landscape amenities and seating.

More public meetings are expected to be held in each other four communities — Everett, Revere, Saugus and Lynn — sometime this month and in June.
