This session will focus on addressing the challenges of coordinating with multiple agencies for shared use of space in floodplains. We'll discuss development of levee top trails in New Orleans, Louisiana and the acquisition of land along 3 major urban waterways to construct approximately 50 miles of trails in San Antonio, Texas. Learn how New Orleans has brought together disparate partners and created a model of levee top path development. Learn how San Antonio's Greenways Program is reaching a wide range of cultures and lifestyles through it's marketing effort for the trails and natural beauty of San Antonio's waterways.

This remains true across the board for each of the major user groups; however, mountain bike rider respondents are less likely to disapprove of allowing e-bikes on non-motorized trails and equestrian respondents are more likely to disapprove.
On October 22, 2020 U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt announced 30 new national recreation trails in 25 states, adding more than 1,275 miles to the National Trails System.
With this document, the Dakota County Greenway Collaborative takes the approach used in roadbuilding and applies it to creating a countywide network of greenways.
