What clients are saying...

WEDCO helped us with an interesting problem.  We needed a new warehouse and wanted to put it on the same lot as our existing retail store.  Zoning was good and money was not the problem, but financing was going to be tricky.

WEDCO was awarded grant from the NH DRED Bureau of Trails for the completion of another section of the Cotton Valley Rail Trail

The $50,000 matching grant from the NH Department of Resources & Economic Development Bureau of Trails will be used to complete a 1.5+ mile portion of the Cotton Valley Rail Trail.  This recreational multi-use trail will eventually extend 12 miles, linking the towns of Wolfeboro, Brookfield and Wakefield via a railroad right-of-way that has the tracks of the old railroad line still in place. 

 Along the way, the trail meanders across two lakes, over trestles, and climbs through Cotton Valley.  The section that will be completed this year is beyond Cotton Valley.  This section will go through scenic wetlands, back woods and fields into Brookfield.

The effort to build this trail began in 1992 and continues today under the leadership of a group of local volunteers known as the Cotton Valley Rail Trail Committee which oversee the interests of the three communities. They regularly maintain and improve the trail.

In addition to being used for walking, biking, snow-showing, snowmobiling, etc., is also used by the Cotton Valley Rail Trail Club a group of motorized railcar enthusiasts from all over New England. Whether you enjoy the scenic beauty of this trail during summer, spring fall or winter, the trail is a safe and peaceful haven for the enjoyment of everyone, residents and visitors alike.
