The Trails Committee meets every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the Richmond Town Center Building.

The mission of the Trails Committee is to establish paths for non-motorized transportation and recreation in Richmond, to maintain these paths, to link with other towns when feasible, and to promote safe citizen use of these paths.
