The Bucks County Planning Commission is seeking the public’s help in studying the viability of new trails connecting the Newtown area to the Delaware & Lehigh Canal Trail.

The grant-funded study aims to identify potential trail routes and evaluate connections to points of interest in the communities along the routes, including schools, shopping and libraries, as well as nature centers and parks.

To make your voice heard, visit the Planning Commission’s Newtown to D&L webpage, complete the survey and plot points of interest on the interactive map.

The page, along with an accompanying video presentation, will remain online and open for community input through Oct. 30.

This study was planned with financial assistance from the Environmental Stewardship Fund and the Community Conservation Partnerships Program of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.

Comments or questions about the study should be emailed to the Planning Commission via Christian Regosch at cpregosch@buckscounty.org or Paul Gordon at pwgordon@buckscounty.org
