Aston- The first public meeting on the Chester Creek Branch Rail-Trail  will be held on Tuesday, March 2nd, 1999, 7:00 PM at the Aston Township Municipal Building 233 Pennell Road (Rt. 452), Aston, PA. The Public Meeting will include :

Representatives from Brandywine Valley Engineers (BVE) and Friends of the Chester Creek Branch/CRC Watersheds Association will be present to provide information on the project, and answer questions. This is the first of several public meetings for the Chester Creek Branch Rail-Trail Feasibility Study. Public meetings will also be scheduled in the future to provide updates to the community on the progress of the Chester Creek Branch Rail-Trail Feasibility Study.

The Friends of the Chester Creek Branch & CRC Watersheds Associations are not-for-profit organizations. The Chester Creek Branch Rail Line is an unused Rail Line that traverses Aston, Chester, and Middletown Townships, with endpoints in Chester Heights & Upland Borough. The purpose of this feasibility study is to determine if this unused rail line can be converted to a multi-use trail for the community.
