Public Input Summary

Five Meetings to Review Regional Greenway Planning were held during November and December of 1997. These meetings were held in order to gather information regarding the status of greenway implementation in Ohio. The information gathered from the meetings will serve as part of the basis for The Blueprint for Action, an action agenda for a statewide greenway initiative. As public comment is a basic part of any planning process, these meetings provided opportunity for greenway developers to comment on their experiences in Ohio. 

Time and Place. Five regional meetings were held. A total of 213 participants attended.
