  • Adopt-a-Trail helps keep Community Trail vibrant

    posted on: 8/6/2018

    The City of Dover and the Dover Community Trail Advisory Committee invite organizations, companies, and general trail lovers to participate in the new Adopt-a-Trail Section program. Volunteer adopters help maintain the beauty and function of the Dover Community Trail by removing litter, trimming overgrowth, and reporting maintenance concerns to the city. Adopters may be individuals, organizations, or civic groups and will be recognized with signage along the trail.

    “The Community Trail is a gem in the City of Dover in large part due to the volunteers who assist in cleaning and maintaining the trail throughout the year,” said Assistant City Planner Donna Benton.

    The Dover Community Trail is a multi-use trail in Dover. It comprises of two sections: a paved urban section stretching three-quarters of a mile from the Transportation Center to Fisher Street, and a natural section two and a half miles long following the Cochecho River from Beckwith Ballfields to Watson Road. Opening in 2018 are further connections from Fisher Street to the corner of Central Avenue and Rutland Street, and from Fourth Street to the Beckwith Ballfields.

    AARP is pleased to welcome Dover as the latest member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. As the latest community to sign on to the network, Dover’s civic leaders will have access to global resources and information on age-friendly best practices, models of assessment and implementation, and the experiences of towns and cities around the world.

    The network helps participating communities become great places for people of all ages by adopting features such as safe, walkable streets; better housing and transportation options; access to key services; and opportunities for residents to participate in civic and community activities.

    “Well-designed, livable communities promote wellbeing, sustain economic growth, and make for happier, healthier residents of all ages, said AARP New Hampshire State Director Todd Fahey. “By becoming part of the network, Dover is making a commitment to do even more to improve livability in the city and involve older residents in the process.”

    “Dover is a community for ALL ages and appreciates the continuing contribution of our aging population segment that has made our city a great place to live and work,” said Dover Mayor Karen Weston.
