On September 22, American Trails held a webinar on “Making the Case for Trails in Tight Economic Times.” It highlighted sound ideas and hard numbers to illustrate the contribution of trails to the prosperity of communities. Attendees learned about some recent studies and enjoyed an overview of state and national trends and statistics.
Let’s keep the dialogue going ~ What are your challenges? How have you been successful in “selling” the economic benefits of trails? How is your community addressing budget cuts – are trails at the top of the “chopping block?” Are there bold public officials standing up for trails, and if so, what are they saying about their benefits? Let us know about your success stories. Are there studies you would like to share with others? Do you have questions? How about answers?
