The idea of converting the inactive Fox-Chase Newtown Line into a multi-purpose trail has been the topic of discussion for months. To continue the conversation, a local group wants you to take a short survey about it.
Build Our Trail, a grassroots organization of residents in Northampton and Upper Southampton Townships who support the conversion, is asking the community to participate in a 10-question survey.
Back in September, the Northampton Township Board of Supervisors decided to hold off on pursuing a Rail to Trail project after hearing public comment from residents and people from neighboring communities. People spoke both for and against the idea of a rail to trail project.
