Lagueux said by putting the petitioned article on the Town Meeting warrant, organizers will be able to get an idea how the community feels about completing the trails.
“It will let us see what people in town think; we’ll get a barometer to let them say how they feel,” she said.
Dan Watson supports the trail with not only his volunteer time, but also his money. Watson, who works in Massachusetts, is an avid cyclist who rides to work on nice days.
“I’ll ride my bike to work, about 30-plus miles,” he said. “The best part of that ride is the Derry/Windham trail right now.”
Having Londonderry complete its trail would be a boost.
“Those things link communities together,” he said. “There are a whole host of benefits for doing this.”
Stacy Thrall walks the trails in other towns and supports the article.
“We would like to see it expanded to Londonderry,” she said.
Rimol said the trail group will continue to seek funding to help complete the trail and all ideas are welcome.
“We are fundraising every day and approaching companies every day,” he said.
