Goffstown considering grant application for rail trail project
“The state Department of Transportation has announced a process by which communities may apply for a federal grant by a program called the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP),” Pierce told the board members. Non-motor vehicle transportation projects, including “construction, planning, and design of on-road and off-road trail facilities for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other non-motorized forms of transportation,” are eligible for the grant.
“The actual breakdown of that type of a match is not a decision that has to be made tonight,” he said. “It’s just a concept of that’s how a match could be obtained. If we were to proceed with the full-blown application, then, yes, at that point, the match has to be nailed down and defined, exactly what the source of the funds would be.”
Board chairman Collis Adams said he supported this plan of action, saying the board wanted to “spread the wealth as equitably as we can.”
