What is this survey? The City of Paducah is expanding its Greenway Trail with a focus on reaching Southside Neighborhoods to
  • Provide safe, walkable connections between our Southside Neighborhoods, Downtown, and the existing Greenway Trail System.
  • Improve health outcomes through fitness opportunities and access to nature.
  • Provide safe and convenient non-vehicular transportation options.

What is a greenway trail? A “greenway trail,” also known as a “multi-use” trail, is made for activities such as walking, running, bicycling, and more. These trails are typically 8 to 12 feet wide, dedicated hard-surface paths that are separate from streets. No vehicles allowed (except for maintenance). In some areas, the trail will need to overlap or intersect with streets. These areas will have designated, protected lanes and crossings for pedestrians and cyclists.

Where is Paducah’s existing greenway trail and a focus area of potential expansion? Below is a map of the existing Greenway Trail which stretches from County Park Road to the Riverfront. One of the main focus areas for expansion would be toward the Southside.

We Want Your Help! We need your help to ensure that the new trail expansion connects the places YOU want to go, provides amenities you want to enjoy, and is safe and accessible to all. This survey will help us understand what kind of trail system our community wants and needs.

This survey CLOSES August 28.

Please tell us your thoughts, ideas, and concerns about this potential expansion of the Greenway Trail. We encourage ALL members of your household to take the survey individually, from seniors to kids!
