The meet­ing will be in the On­te­ora High School Au­di­to­rium, 4166 state Route 28, Boiceville. Of­fi­cials will pro­vide back­ground in­for­ma­tion and up­dates on the county’s planned Ashokan Rail Trail project, an 11.5-mile recre­ational trail along the north­ern edge of the Ashokan Reser­voir be­tween West Hur­ley and Boiceville.
