SHAMOKIN — A proposed rails-to-trails project and upcoming community events were the main topics of discussion during council’s workshop Wednesday night.

SEDA-Council of Governments Revitalization Coordinator Betsy Kramer advised council that a steering committee behind the proposed trail between Sunbury and Mount Carmel held its first meeting. She explained that the Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA) owns approximately 10 miles of railroad bed, between the southeastern-end of Sunbury to Paxinos, that would be part of the project.
