Mill River Greenway Committee

Mill River Greenway Mission Statement

The Mill River Greenway Committee exists to coordinate efforts in Williamsburg and Haydenville regarding the creation of a multipurpose greenway following the course of the Mill River. The Williamsburg-Haydenville Mill River Greenway will link the village centers and provide public access to adjacent natural settings, historically important cultural landmarks, and local businesses.

The Committee will do this by:

  • Focusing and encouraging local enthusiasm, input, and participation in the project
  • Respectfully working with local property owners
  • Encouraging, gathering, and further developing design concepts into a proposed Williamsburg-Haydenville Mill River Greenway Plan
  • Teaming up with related town committees and organizations, including but not limited to:
    • Conservation Commission
    • Historical Society and Historical Commission
    • Open Space Committee
    • Recreation Commission
    • Woodland Trails Committee
  • Identifying and tapping into private and public resources, on local, regional, state, and federal levels, including but not limited to:
    • Local volunteers
    • Pioneer Valley Planning Commission
    • Student and professional resources from local colleges
    • Mill River Greenway Initiative
    • Other towns along the Mill River
    • Private and public grants and other funding sources
