From the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal, popular media increasingly tell the story of homeowners’ desires to have trails accessible from their doorstep. To meet this growing desire, it is critical for trail planners to work closely with private developers. In fact, the very success of many community trail networks is reliant upon the integration of public trails with private development pathways. This presentation will offer two perspectives on how trail advocates, local governments and developers are working together to achieve success. Join this session to learn how to build a public/private trail network that turns homes into trailheads.
