Salem commission to hold public hearing on trails

Salem — The Planning and Zoning Commission has scheduled a public hearing for Jan. 26 to discuss plans for three crossings on the town's multipurpose path.

The hearing will take place at Town Hall beginning at 7 p.m.

The Harris Brook trails run behind Salem School and Town Hall.

Because Harris Brook is part of the Eightmile River Watershed, which is protected under the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, land along the brook is in the Riparian Corridor Overlay Zone.

In order to construct the three crossings in this zone, the commission must grant a special permit.

Approval for the crossings already has been granted by the Army Corps of Engineers, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the Salem Inland Wetlands Commission.

Details from their evaluations will be discussed at the public hearing.
