Export residents with an interest in the Westmoreland Heritage Trail will have a chance to find out more about its passage through the Westmoreland County borough next month.

The next trail committee meeting is set for 7 p.m. on Feb. 8 at the Italian American Club on Kennedy Avenue.

Export Councilwoman Melanie Litz said the trail's potential path through the borough will be discussed in detail.

The newest section of the trail, dedicated in September 2017, runs 5.9 miles from the Trafford Trail Access point at Parkside Creamery, near B-Y Park, to the Roberts Trail Access point off the eastbound side of Route 22 in Murrysville.

The Murrysville-Export section of the trail is slated to be completed by 2019, according to trail officials. After that, the Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation department will start work on the Export-Delmont section.

The club is at 5930 Kennedy Avenue. The meeting will take place in its banquet room.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
