Upcoming Meetings to Discuss Regional Greenway Linkages


Posted 11/20/2012

Several area organizations are partnering to hold a series of public meetings to explore regional greenway connections that can be a boost to local economies.


The Plan East Tennessee process has created interest in all sorts of connections. Among them, an renewed interest in linking up our region’s trails and greenways.

PlanET is partnering with the Great Smoky Mountains Regional Greenway Council and the Knoxville Regional TPO to host a series of meetings around the region on making greenway connections.

The purpose of the meetings is to encourage countywide and regional cooperation on connecting greenways and to create countywide conceptual greenway plans that the local governments and other partners can then work together to implement. 

The meetings will take place in Anderson, Blount, Loudon and Union counties. (Knox County already has a countywide greenway plan, so we won’t be holding a meeting there.)

At each meeting, you’ll hear from speakers who will talk about what’s going on with greenways in that county, and will also share information about the many benefits of greenways, including economic development, improved health and more transportation choices. You’ll also have the opportunity to tell us what greenway and trail connections you’d like to see.

Here are the meeting details:
