The main section of NRVT in Redding – known as the Redding mile – extends north from the border with Ridgefield. It is designed, shovel-ready and takes advantage of a pre-existing wood road from old construction within the Super 7 corridor. The cost is estimated at $265,000. Three grants have been submitted, and $42,000 has been raised to date. The main grant we have applied for has a 20% matching requirement so early fundraising is critical even if we win the state grant. What’s more it may be possible to begin construction before funding the entire project.

What’s Next:

  • A decision on the Recreational Trail Grant application for the Redding Mile is expected soon pending resolution of the CT State Budget. Our application is highly scored should funding be restored, and we have submitted written testimony to that end.
  • MATCH A CHALLENGE GRANT! Help us raise more funds to meet a $4,000 challenge grant from the beFoundation.
