The Oconee Rivers Greenway Network Plan is a living document that guides the future of the greenway system of Athens-Clarke County. ACC Leisure Services staff worked in conjunction with The Oconee Rivers Greenway Commission to update the Greenway Network Plan alignment and supporting maps based on past public input and new mapping information available to aid in analysis of the Greenway corridors.
We are hosting a series of public input sessions to share the latest maps with citizens and other interested stakeholders. Leisure Services staff will review comments collected from the online survey and during those meetings, and develop the final alignment and maps based on that input.
Leisure Services is updating the graphic portion of the Greenway Network Plan. That means that we are simplifying some of our alignments, rerouting some of the connections, adding potential new trail segments, and removing some of the less feasible trail segments. This update will only change the maps and will not include a written report update (that’s coming next year!) We want to get input from you on all of these changes.
Please explore the Interactive Map and complete the Public Input Survey found on the map.
Here is some additional information about how best to utilize the Interactive Map and tips to make navigation even easier:
