  1. Until the various Bylaws take effect and a membership system is instituted, please just delete the opening header “Board/Members.”

    In opening sentence, please add ‘and individuals.’

    Change Current Members are……………… to read Current Board of Directors are………….

    In list of officers, adjust spacing so names align to left; and remove period after Baxter

    Please delete entirely from the TRAIL MEMBERS list the one reading “Allegheny Valley Trails Association (w/Oil City) Samuel Justus Trail”

    In list of SUPPORTING AGENCIES, please add Council on Greenways and Trails (CGT)

    Thank you very much.

  2. City of Titusville owns the current Queen City Trail but they are not EPTA members. The EPTA member entity is Titusville Area Trail Assoc. (TATA)

  3. How are we going to handle sections such as the part through Oil City? It is marked as trail (share the road) by Oil City but they aren’t members.

  4. The Samuel Justus Trail is owned and operated by Cranberry Township. AVTA and Oil City should not be listed for that one.

  5. Very Nice – one change, please remove Cornplanter Township from the McClintock Trial. Although the Township does own the Waitz Road section, they prefer that trail related comments come through ORA. Thanks
