The Lark Harbour Trail Committee Inc. is planning to extend its multipurpose trail system from town out towards the Serpentine River.
The committee’s plans were recently registered with the provincial government for environmental assessment.
The project would involve a 12-kilometre extension from Riley’s Brook, also known as Wild Cove Brook, to the Cold River area near the Serpentine River.
The four-metre wide trail would require three bridges, which would be built with consideration given to seasonal flooding.
It’s expected the trail would take three months to build and the hope is to get the work started June 1.
The Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment will accept public comments on the proposed trail up until May 9. The minister’s decision on the environmental assessment process is scheduled for May 19.
