Greenway and Open Space Plan

The Executive Summary, as a  story map, is available here!

The purpose the plan is to establish specific priorities for conserving open spaces such as farms, forests, community parks and waterbodies and for creating future greenway corridors which are a specific type of open space that follow linear landscape features like old rail lines, rivers, streams or ridgetops.

The Greenway and Open Space plan is organized into five chapters that provide an introduction, overview of Union County, a description of greenway and open space resources, a proposed framework for greenways and open space conservation, and 54 specific actions to implement the plan goals.  The plan contains recommendations on conservation measures, education and outreach, land preservation, parks and recreation, and trails/non-motorized transportation.
