The Montgomery County Board of Commissioners – including Joseph Gale, Dr. Valerie Arkoosh, and Kenneth Lawrence Jr. – issued a proclamation supporting the Circuit Trails Coalition’s goal of completing 500 miles of trails on the Circuit by 2025.
Montgomery County is the second of nine counties in the Circuit Trails region to endorse this effort. The proclamation’s short-term goal is part of a larger effort to build the trail system’s full network of more than 750 miles by 2040.
Montgomery County’s commitment to the expansion of the Circuit Trails is a vital step forward for progression of the network, which is currently home to more than 325 miles of completed trails.
Trails create connections, provide transportation routes, and facilitate space for communities to work and play.
By issuing this proclamation, Montgomery County joins Chester County and 20 municipalities in recognizing the value a thriving regional trail system brings to local communities.
