New Bedford Officials Plan Palmer’s Island Restoration Project

TSM

The City of New Bedford is looking to restore the historic Palmer’s Island.

Several officials from the Environmental Stewardship office ventured out onto the island this morning, to scout out potential trail locations that would make it easier to walk the island.

Michele Paul, Director of Environmental Stewardship tells WBSM News there’s still a lot of questions that need to be answered before the project moves forward.

Michele says about $100,000 from the Harbor Trustees Council has been made available for the project, which will be mostly volunteer-driven.

Preliminary plans call for walking paths to stretch the entire length and width of the island, by using pre-existing paths and clearing out some brush.

The next scheduled clean-up of Palmer’s Island is April 20, Earth Day.
