Greenways, Blueways and Trails - Public Workshop Aug 20th
City of Boynton Beach Invites Public To Workshop
The City of Boynton Beach hosted a Public Workshop on Thursday, August 20, 2015 to review and discuss with the citizens of Boynton Beach the draft Greenways, Blueways and Trails Master Plan. The workshop was held from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the City Library Program Room.
In an effort to make the plan reflective of our community’s needs and interest, the City invited the public to provide feedback and suggestions in an interactive workshop, aimed at updating the original Greenways Plan that was adopted in concept in 2004.
The general objective of the Greenways, Blueways and Trails Master Plan is to provide a comprehensive plan identifying, illustrating, defining and prioritizing the improvement of new and existing greenways and trails and associated amenities. When implemented, the proposed connectivity of facilities will increase and enhance multimodal and non-motorized transportation, tourism, education, recreation, economic development, health, physical fitness, and environmental conservation throughout the defined areas.
The plan will also address the diversity of users by incorporating quality of life, property value, and safety issues relating to the development of on and off street facilities. The interconnected system of greenways, bikeways and blueways will facilitate access to major destinations and points of interest, as well as connectivity on both a local and regional level.
