Our Successes


Engineering Study
We have contracted with Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (“VHB”), who is nearing completion of a comprehensive engineering study that will itemize funding needs, propose marketing plans and produce detailed maps highlighting the network of walkways.

This study — funded entirely with private donations — will identify how this walking network will connect the north (Heritage Trail North, ultimately to Canada), south (Heritage Trail South through Bedford and Merrimack), east (Rockingham Trail to the Seacoast) and west (Piscataquog Trail Goffstown/New Boston).

Brand Development
We chose Manchester MOVES as our name because of its wide representation of our mission:
  • Manchester MOVES to a greener city
  • Manchester MOVES to connect its communities
  • Manchester MOVES to a healthier lifestyle
A logo and all collateral material have been developed to strongly position and represent this organization.

Basics
  • Registered with the proper authorities in the city & state
  • Accepted by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization
  • Collection of private funds to promote our cause has begun
  • Registered the legal entity name and domain of www.manchesterMOVES.org
