Groton’s 2022 Recreation Needs Assessment clearly showed that among Groton Parks and Recreation's most used resources are the Town’s trails and pathways. In conducting the Assessment, residents told us that their top priority is increasing trail and pathway connectivity and waterfront access. Given this direction from the community, the Town launched a Complete Streets and Trails Master Plan project. This project is being directed by the Town and its Complete Streets Committee with support of FHI Studio, the lead consultant for this work.

Creating this Master Plan will involve researching and collecting data on existing conditions of our streets, trails, and pathways as it relates to bicycle and pedestrian use and accessibility, engaging the community to learn of their specific desires, producing conceptual plans and ultimately, an action plan to achieve the determined goals and objectives. We anticipate using the Master Plan to pursue grant funding to assist in implementing the Plan’s recommendations.

The project launched in January of 2024 and will be active throughout the year with completion of the plan expected by the end of the year. The community will have an opportunity to participate in this process by taking an online survey, attending a public workshop, and attending a public presentation. Pleased stay tuned for announcements of those events!
