GREENFIELD — Plans detailing the connection of the Pennsy Trail from Greenfield to Cumberland will be laid out in a Jan. 9 public hearing, and the project is still on track to go before the public in a vote as early as the May 6 primary election.

The Sugar Creek Pennsy Trail Committee met Wednesday with Dennis Cobb, the engineer designing plans to bridge the 4.5-mile gap between the trails in the two communities.

While Cobb presented a map and said the project could total between $5 million and $6 million, tweaks will still be made over the next month and the map is not yet available to the public, said Commissioner Brad Armstrong.

Armstrong said there are between 30 and 40 parcels that would need to be acquired from private landowners to make the project a reality, and those landowners will be contacted in the coming weeks. Still, members of the committee are eager to see the project moving forward.
