BELLEFONTE — The county will hold a public meeting to discuss the Bellefonte to Milesburg trail feasibility study on Thursday, Dec. 6, at the Bellefonte Borough Municipal Building.

The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. and a presentation of the complete feasibility study of the project will begin at 6 p.m. The meeting will be hosted by Centre County government, along with its consultant Paskek+MTR, a landscape architecture and community planning firm from Pittsburgh.

The meeting will gather final comments on the potential trail project, its conceptual alignment and other factors pertaining to the feasibility of the development, along with potential next steps for the project.
