Your answers to this simple survey will assist in answering the following questions and help us determine how we can best design our program to support your community greenway planning, construction, and stewardship efforts:
•How and why Connecticut municipalities are planning for greenways;
•What extent planned greenway areas are protected;
•Do those planning for greenways look beyond town and regional boundaries during the planning process;
•Where do those planning for municipal greenways look for information concerning other greenway locations; and
•What resources are needed to help plan, construct, and steward Connecticut’s community greenways.
The Eastern CT Resource, Conservation & Development Program (RC&D) is partnering with CACIWC to increase the focus on the development and the stewardship of greenways as a method of connecting rural, suburban, and urban communities with particular attention to natural resource protection, riparian and wildlife corridor connectivity, economic development, preservation of scenic resources and community character, and connection of environmental justice populations to public services.
This first step, the survey, is to investigate potential open space and greenway linkages across municipal and regional boundaries, with a special focus on river corridors and watersheds.
