Delaware County was recently awarded a $35,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to prepare a feasibility study for the Media-Smedley Connector Trail. This trail, which was identified in the County’s Open Space, Recreation, and Greenway Plan (2015), would serve as a major east-west connection in the countywide trail network. It has the potential to directly link three county parks, multiple local parks, and five municipalities, including Media Borough, the County seat.

The study process will include a review of previous planning efforts; physiographic, natural, and cultural features; structures within the corridor; utilities; intersections and access points; and potential environmental hazards. The final work product will be a written report identifying a potential route and detailing the associated feasibility and potential costs. A concept plan illustrating the location of the trail and all associated design features (e.g., parking trailheads, landscaping, bike racks, etc.) is also a critical work product.

The planning process will be conducted in close coordination with a study committee and local municipalities; it will also involve outreach to the community.
