Scary Start at Lane St.
It looks like Barry Mucci has moved his backhoe over to the Lane St. entrance of the RecPath and started grading out the 8 foot path bed & shoulders. There was no activity today (Thursday 10-15-09), but the weather was turning snotty & most work will probably be rained out until next week.
I also set a series of flags showing the RecPath hugging the edge of the meadow going onto the boardwalk. I suggest that everybody on the Trails Committee take a look at them to see what you think. The goal is to shift the RecPath to the edge of the meadow where we removed the invasive species last Spring. This minimizes the visual impact of the RecPath for the neighbors and park users, and helps to create a buffer between the active agricultural meadow and the adjoining Means Brook floodplain.
