In collaboration with boards/committees and the departments of Conservation and Parks & Recreation, the Town recently updated its Open Space & Recreation Plan (2018) and did an Earl Newhouse Waterfront Master Plan (2017) and engineered site plans (2019). Future open space planning efforts will include implementing Earl Newhouse Waterfront improvements, and planning for future trail connections in Town.
Warner Trail Extension Feasibility Study
Project Overview and Goals
BSC Group (BSC) is the consultant for the Town of Canton in cooperation with the Walk, Bike and Hike Committee to extend the existing Warner Trail that currently terminates at the Sharon/Canton Town Line, into and through Canton to eventually connect to the Blue Hills Reservation via off-road (and on-road) segments. BSC will partner with the Town and trail stakeholders to provide a full range of planning, environmental, design, and engineering services to review and evaluate other potential route(s) for possible consideration as either short-term or long-term options, and prepare a feasibility study report that will summarize all of the routes considered and order-of-magnitude costs (construction and design) with an interactive map of the proposed network and recommendations and assistance with applying for funding of the project, utilizing local, state, and/or federal grants/programs
This study is being conducted from September 2021 to June 2022.
