Greenways are corridors of land recognized for their ability to connect people and places together. The Susquehanna Greenway will link natural, cultural, historic, and recreational resources along the 500-mile corridor of the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. It will create a basin-wide organization for resource management and community conservation – factors of lasting importance to the economies and quality of life of river communities.
The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership seeks to:
Determine the status of regional greenway efforts;
Build upon public participation activities previously conducted in the corridor;
Promote the importance of strong community involvement in present and future greenway development;
Provide a diverse and inclusive program to maximize input from all segments of the population; and
Promote local ownership of the greenway plan and it’s implementation!
Those who will benefit from this project are as diverse, as common, and as unique as the area’s urban, suburban, and rural populations. The Greenway Plan will lead to the establishment of an interconnected web of communities and ecosystems spanning great distances, and addressing the varied needs of all people, regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, and socio-economic status.
