Proposed expansion of the Auburn Trail from Farmington to Canandaigua

The last of a series of input meetings for the Auburn Trail Connection to Ontario Pathways Feasibility Study will be held at 6:30 p.m. this Wednesday, Aug. 22, at the Canandaigua Town Hall. Citizens will have a chance to offer their views and ask questions of the committee conducting the review.

The hope is to extend the just-over nine-mile Auburn Trail from its westernmost point in Monroe County beyond its current end at County Road 41 in Farmington. The plan is to extend it about six-and-a-half miles through the towns of Farmington and Canandaigua into the city of Canandaigua, where it will tie into the Ontario Pathways trail system.

The Auburn Trail would then link not only to the Ontario Pathways and the Finger Lakes Trail, but also the statewide Erie Canal Corridor Trail System, the Genesee Valley Greenway and the regional Lehigh Valley Trail, to name a few.

The towns of Canandaigua and Farmington along with the city of Canandaigua are each contributing $2,000 toward the total $80,000 project review. After Wednesday’s meeting, the review committee will compile its findings and, if a consensus on how to proceed is reached, a report will be turned over to the Genesee Transportation Council for approval.
