New Androscoggin Greenway Map highlights outdoor opportunities

The new Androscoggin Greenway Map highlights areas of interest through out Jay, Livermore Falls, Livermore and Canton and includes information on the Androscoggin River, Lakes and Ponds, Area Trails, Local Events, Cultural Attractions, Local Foods and Farms and other information.

JAY - The Androscoggin Greenway Map has been updated and is now available for community members. The updated Map was one of three projects identified by local stakeholders during the 2015 Making Headway in Your Community pilot program.

Community members and businesses from Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls engaged with GrowSmart Maine in three public events and projects to build relationships across the three communities and with regional resource organizations. The two other projects were re-shingling a portion of the roof of the Livermore Community Center and kiosks at the entrances to Androscoggin Land Trust conservation and recreational trails.

The Managers of Jay and Livermore Falls worked with John Maloney (now retired) at the Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments to identify updates and additions to the map and with the generous support of Androscoggin Bank, Otis Federal Credit Union, Franklin Printing, CCGIS, AVCOG and GrowSmart Maine the maps have been updated, printed and are now available. The map highlights areas of interest through out Jay, Livermore Falls, Livermore and Canton and includes information on the Androscoggin River, Lakes and Ponds, Area Trails, Local Events, Cultural Attractions, Local Foods and Farms and other information.

The maps will be available in each Town as well as at the Androscoggin Bank in Jay and the Otis Federal Credit Union.
