(NH) Recreational Trail Program in Jeopardy
Recreational Trail Program in Jeopardy- Equine Land Conservation Resource.
.by New Hampshire Horse Council on Thursday, July 28, 2011 at 2:56pm.There is an urgent issue that needs your attention having to do with federal recreational trail spending. The Recreational Trail Program (RTP) - the primary source of trail funding in this country - is in great jeopardy.Horsemen should contact their federal legislators immediately to help preserve funding for recreational trails. If we do not act, many trails will be closed and there will be little in the way of new trail construction or federal funds for maintenance (which will lead to more closures). RTP is a program of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), providing funds to the states to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both motorized and non-motorized recreational trail uses. Please contact your legislator TODAY and let them know how important the RTP program and equestrian trails are to you
