TOWN OF CHARLOTTE
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN SCOPING STUDY
The Town of Charlotte is seeking assistance from qualified firms to provide planning services to identify issues associated with possible construction of a multi-use path, as described below.
There are two completed sections of the Charlotte Town Link Trail (a multi-use path)—the Melissa & Trevor Mack section on the east side of Route 7 and the Cohousing section on the west side of Route 7. When the underpass of Route 7 is completed in 2017, these two sections will be joined into a completed two-mile multi-use path.
The town seeks to scope two sections that would extend the completed portion of the path on both ends to two important destination points: Mount Philo State Park (to the southeast) and the West Charlotte village (to the north). The scoping work would look at 1) connecting Mount Philo State Park to the southerly end of the Melissa & Trevor Mack Trail via a bicycle/pedestrian facility along State Park Road (approximately .5 miles) and 2) connecting the northerly end of the Cohousing section to the West Charlotte village via a new multi-use path (approximately 1.5 miles).
For a complete request for proposals or to find out more about the project, please contact Town Administrator Dean Bloch at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 425-3071 ext. 5.
