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 program will provide an overview of the needs and processes surrounding assessments of trails and outdoor constructed features.
