Would You Like More Trails and Greenways?
Buncombe County is in the process of composing a plan for the development of walking and bicycling trails throughout the County. The County Commissioners are seeking public input on what citizens would like to see included in the plan.
Beginning February 4th, citizens may view the initial, draft trails/greenways map on the County’s website. Citizens can identify places where they would like to see trails/greenways and submit their comments to Linda Giltz at email@example.com or by calling 251-6622.
The base map for this plan includes data from a regional greenways plan and pertinent data from the County’s Parks and Recreation plan and the Land Conservation Advisory Board. A workshop was held in early December, 2007 with representatives from the county and municipalities, related advisory boards and organizations involved in pedestrian and bicycle advocacy and planning. The current draft map is a result of the base map plus the input received at the workshop.
For more information, contact Linda Giltz at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 251-6622.
