City of Green Requests Input on Master Connectivity Plan Community Survey

GREEN, OH – The City of Green launches its Connectivity Survey on Saturday, June 3,Kids walkingNational Trails Day.   The City is asking the community for feedback on existing and potential connections that would serve walkers, bikers and runners.

City leaders recognize that providing connections for walking, running, and biking helps to create a healthy and vibrant community.  Connectivity provides a means of exercise, recreation and transportation while enhancing quality of life and reducing congestion.  An important part of the planning process is the opportunity the community has to recommend destinations and evaluate existing conditions.  "Understanding where and how our residents want to walk and bike helps us achieve a more dynamic system of trails and sidewalks," said Sarah Haring, community development administrator.

The City received a $28,800 grant from AMATS Connecting Community Planning Grants program to create the Green Master Connectivity Plan.  In addition to the survey, the city will be working with Environmental Design Group who will gather and evaluate existing data, hold public meetings and design the final plan for future pedestrian/biking connectivity.

The survey will be sent to residents via email and is available on the City’s website and through social media.  All residents and those who work within the City of Green are welcome to complete the survey.
