GREENWAY PROJECT: The Mosquito Lake Greenway Project is conducting a short survey to assess a sense of community within the Mosquito Lake communities (Cortland, Bazetta and Mecca townships), the perception of their development potential and awareness of the Mosquito Lake Greenway Project.
The Mosquito Lake Greenway Project proposes encircling the Southern part of Mosquito Lake with a greenway to be used by pedestrians and bicyclists. A greenway is essentially a linear park that commonly has a paved section. Plans include connecting to the Western Reserve Greenway which is the Trumbull County section of the Great Ohio Lake to River Greenway that runs between Ashtabula and East Liverpool.
The survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/K8FGYFV or on the websites for the city of Cortland, Bazetta Township and the Maplewood School System. It can also be found on the Facebook pages for the Mosquito Lake Greenway Project, Cortland and Bazetta Township police departments, the Cortland and Bazetta Township fire departments, the Lakeview Bulldogs Alumni Association and Everything Cortland.
