Construction has wrapped up on the Greenway for this season and depending on the availability of funding will pick up again next year with finishing items such as trail head signage and benches.
Much was accomplished this year with the vast majority of work done by local contractors. While SATA’s fiscal year won’t end until March 31 here is an estimation of the sources of funds:
Amount raised for the community by SATA Trails 2019 - 2020:
HRM $ 482,162 54.1%
Trans Canada Trail 219,000 24.6% (non-government)
Province of NS 153,750 17.3%
SATA Trails 35,714 4.0% (non-government)
Total amount raised $890,626
Total non-government contribution $254,714 28.6%
Administrative costs amount to less than one tenth of one per cent with volunteers paying expenses out of pocket. Not included in the above is the value of work in kind and donated goods and services.
SATA volunteers are supporters are happy to have brought this improvement to the community.
