Delmont residents look to form ‘visionary committee,’ will meet Wednesday

Community members and trail enthusiasts listen to speakers during a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the grand opening of the third phase of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail on Sept. 30, 2017, on the trailhead at B-Y Park in Trafford.

Several Delmont residents are looking to form a “visionary committee” as they prepare for the arrival of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail in the borough.

Annamarie Stackiewicz of Delmont said those interested in forming the committee would be meeting for the first time at 7 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Delmont Public Library, 77 Greensburg St.

The upcoming fourth phase of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail, connecting Murrysville and Export, is projected to be complete by late August.

County commissioners in November approved a $1.3 million agreement with Plum Contracting to construct the fourth phase, which will extend its western section through Murrysville to Lincoln Avenue in Export.

That leaves only one more gap, between Export and Delmont, before hikers and bikers can travel unimpeded for nearly 23 miles from Trafford to Saltsburg.

The Westmoreland Heritage Trail board will meet on Valentine’s Day at the Lamplighter in Salem.

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.
