Submit Comments to Support Connecticut Mountain Biking

Friday, December 15, 2017

Action Alert – Mountain Bikers should Submit Comments Supporting Mountain Biking and More Trail Access to Connecticut’s Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP)

 

Comments must be submitted by Friday, December 28th.

 

Email comments to: deep.scorp@ct.gov

Mail comments to: DEEP SCORP c/o Doug Jann, Environmental Analyst, Bureau of Outdoor Recreation, 79 Elm Street Hartford, CT 06106.

Connecticut’s Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) provides a five-year plan and vision for outdoor recreation. As such, it’s important for mountain biking to be highlighted and promoted in the plan where it is severely lacking at this time. We urge NEMBA members and riders at large to send in comments supporting mountain biking and increased multi-use trail development and access for bikes.

In order to help you submit comments, we are providing a few bullet points you can copy and paste into your response or incorporate into your own words:

1) Increase and improve on the quality of the singletrack trail inventory in the Connecticut state park system. Trail-based recreation needs a larger inventory of quality multi-use trails throughout the state. Increased funding for trail development is important. However, it is equally important to increase the partnerships with trail advocacy organizations, such as NEMBA, to create and maintain new multi-use singletrack trail opportunities.

2) Increase the multi-use singletrack trail connectivity between DEEP Forests and Parks, municipal and private land trusts properties, and water company lands. i.e.: Burlington area trails can be used to interconnect different singletrack trail networks.

3) Create and expand long distance commuter trails that connect different communities and multi-use trail systems to promote environmentally friendly commuting and expand upon economical impacts from trail users. Trails, such as the Airline Trail, Hop River Trail, Richard Goodwin Trail are important connectors to build upon.

4) Increase accessibility for mountain biking on multi-use trails through improved parking lots and trail marking/mapping for trail systems. Modernize and increase wayfinding technology by creating supporting mobile map apps and improving signage and maps. Work on signage that works for all trail users.

5) Increase promotion of outdoor recreation, outdoor events and partner organizations on DEEP’s website to increase local trail use and trail use tourism. Work with NEMBA to identify trail systems that are mountain biking friendly and to promote multi-use trail development across town lines.
