Recognizing the value of trails and greenways as Pathways to Healthy Communities, decision makers, planners and practitioners, and trail advocates from around Greater Cleveland gathered on June 12th, 2014 in Mayfield Village, Ohio to share ideas, discover new tools, and set the stage to transform plans and concepts into successfully completed projects.
Building on feedback from the successful 2010 and 2012 Conferences, the 2014 event included expert speakers, topic panels, peer learning, open discussions, and networking opportunities. In 2014 we welcomed one of the nation’s foremost authorities and advocates for walkable communities, public health issues, and the need for community, environmental, and public-policy initiatives, Mark Fenton.
The 2014 Conference provided an opportunity for professionals, trail & greenway advocates, community leaders, and tourism & business interests to:
- Explore emerging trends in design.
- Build skills for funding and project success.
- Understand how trails & greenways benefit the economy, environment, and health of thriving communities.
