NEW Schedule for Florida Greenways and Trails Plan Workshops

 In BikeWalkLee's 9/19/17 Action Alert blog, we reported that the OGT workshops would be rescheduled due to Hurricane Irma.  This week, the new schedule has been released (see below).  If you're interested in seeing the Seminole Gulf Railroad corridor trail between Bonita Springs and Estero restored to the official Trail Map, please plan to attend one of these workshops (closest is in North Port on Oct. 26th) or submit comments to OGT.  Instructions are found in our Sept. 19th blog post.

Office of Greenways and Trails: October 3, 2017
DRAFT 2018-22 Florida Greenways and Trails System (FGTS) Plan & maps available online HERE.

Public Workshops Re-scheduled

The FGTS Plan establishes the vision for implementing a connected statewide system of greenways and trails for recreation, conservation, alternative transportation, healthy lifestyles, a vibrant economy, and a high quality of life. The Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT) is updating the FGTS 5-Year Plan and holding 14 public open houses throughout the state.
The purpose of these meetings is to receive public input on the proposed update to the draft written 2018-2022 FGTS Plan and Land and Water Opportunity & Priority Maps.

Please plan to join us at a location close to you. If you are unable to participate in person, there is a comment form online which you can submit by e-mail or conventional mail.

Comments accepted through December 15, 2017.
