Happy Trails! Planning and Designing Trails for All Users
DATE: Thursday, April 29, 2021
TIME: 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Register today for this free webinar, which will highlight the new Montgomery County Trail Access, Diversity, & Awareness Plan and demonstrate how best practices can be applied to any community trail network in the county. Montgomery County has an extensive and very popular trail network. However, the demographics of our trail users do not always reflect the diversity of the communities they pass through and, often, there are physical and cultural barriers preventing local residents from accessing our trail system. In response to this issue and to support the transportation and equity goals established in the county's comprehensive plan, Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, the county created and adopted a new trail, diversity, and awareness. Join us to explore this innovative plan, which aims to promote equity on county trails, broaden the diversity of trail users, and modernize trail designs to address the evolving demographics of our constituents. This event is being provided as part of Planning Smarter Montco 2021, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach, and corresponds to the Connected Community theme contained in the county’s comprehensive plan.
