Greenways/ Trails Regional Map Series
On March 20, the Palm Beach MPO hosted a seven-county regional workshop to seek additional public input for a Regional Greenways & Trails map series being developed for Southeast Florida. A third and final workshop is anticipated for May. Updated versions of the draft maps below will be posted prior to the final workshop along with a summary of the March 20 workshop. Those encouraged to participate include local residents, user groups, business owners, and agency staff from metropolitan/transportation planning organizations and other agencies and local governments from the region covering Indian River County to Monroe County. Please contact Bret Baronak with a request to be included on the workshop announcement: BBaronak@PalmBeachMPO.org or call 561-684-4170. The project includes identification of facilities for hiking, cycling, equestrians, paddling trails and other destinations of interest. Workshops include a review of greenways and trails criteria for inclusion in the project; a review of maps including types and status of facilities, paddling trails (aka "blueways"), facilities for equestrians, off-road facilities, key regional destinations (parks, boat ramps, sites of interest.) Comments and suggested revisions may be made via email to BBaronak@PalmBeachMPO.org.
