Bucks County Planning Commission Seeks Public Input on Newtown to Delaware Canal Trail Options

Bucks County Planning Commission Seeks Public Input on Newtown to Delaware Canal Trail Options | Newtown News of Interest |

The Bucks County Planning Commission is seeking feedback from the public on possible trail routes connecting the Newtown area to the Delaware Canal Towpath.

In a feasibility study completed in April, the planning commission identified 11 potential trail routes connecting the communities of Newtown and Yardley boroughs and Lower Makefield, Middletown, Newtown and Upper Makefield townships. Information was incorporated from the study’s initial survey and outreach effort in fall 2020.

The planning commission now would like stakeholders and members of the public to review and comment on the potential trail routes. Anyone interested can visit the plan’s webpage at and provide feedback through the webpage’s comment feature. The webpage also provides considerable background on the project, trail types, and a detailed map of each segment.

The comment period for the proposal will last from July 5 to July 23.
