The Greenbelt is a 20 mile loop trail through and around Harrisburg.  The trail includes on-road sections as well as dedicated paved and gravel paths for bikers, walkers, and any non-motorized activities.  The Capital Area Greenbelt Association is a non-profit association of volunteers that work with the host municipalities to preserve and promote this recreational resource.





Click here to read the draft of the new by-laws. Click here for a summary of the changes. Click here to review the current by-laws.
NOTE: One change has been made to the draft bylaws since the copy that was distributed to the membership by e-mail and regular mail in early September. That change is to add language to Article VIII, Section 4 regarding the Membership Committee to clarify that the committee will be responsible for the retention of existing members. The revised language reads “The duties of the Membership Committee shall be to retain and increase the overall Membership of the Association and to oversee the timely payment of Membership annual dues.”
Meetings were held on September 12, 2016 and September 21 to discuss the changes and answer questions. If you missed the meetings, you can send questions by e-mail to Dick Norford at or by phone at 717-460-4684.
