Presenters: Mitch Barloga, Transportation Planner, Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission; Shaunna Graf; Project Director, Ohio River Greenway Commission
Both public and private entities are seeking creative avenues to fund trail development, promotion, and maintenance. In Indiana, the Greenways Foundation has taken the lead in becoming a source for both trail funding and advocacy. This presentation examines how the Foundation has effectively worked with both private and public partners to expand trail access throughout all of Indiana, and how similar strategies can be applied in other states.
