Central Ohio Greenways
An in-depth analysis of the current state of trail and greenway networks across the country was completed. This work coincided with monthly COG Board working sessions to develop a set of goals, conversation talking points and actions for each of the four working teams.
The Vision and Strategic Plan
A new vision statement was created for that reflects the importance of greenways in the region by providing health and wellness, promoting conservation, increasing economic development, and offering a viable transportation option to residents.
Vision… “A world-class network of trails easily accessible to every central Ohioan.”
Mission… “To increase greenway trail mileages and use of trails for recreational and transportational needs.”
The final plan includes five goals and 53 specific actions. These actions are prioritized by the four working teams into short-term and long-term categories. The prioritization focuses the COG Board’s efforts and resources for the next five years.
