The 2004 Concord Open Space and Recreation Plan identified the need for a Trails Committee to aid the Town in trails issues and facilitate processes related to them, and to advise the Natural Resources Commission (NRC) on trail issues including, but not limited to:
  • Any Restrictions Required for Trail Preservation
  • Handicap Accessibility
  • Instances of Improper Encroachment
  • Interference With Trail Use
  • Routing or Re-Routing
  • Trail Blockages or Deterioration
  • Trail Marking

The Concord Trails Committee will report to the Natural Resources Commission (NRC) and will coordinate its activities with the Natural Resources Director.

Initial charges of the Trails Committee are as follows:
  1. To monitor the condition of all Concord existing public trails and trail markings, and identify areas needing improvement. Trail areas needing improvement will be documented and photographed. Identify appropriate locations for new trails, coordinating with private landowners on adjacent parcels.
  2. Develop and revise trail maps and descriptions for Town lands.
  3. Committee members will also assist the NRC, where appropriate, in implementing recommendations made by the committee and approved by the NRC.
  4. In support of the NRC and its mission, act as stewards of trails and Town lands.
