Our Task

The Greenway Collaborative teamed with JJR and Active Transportation Alliance to assist The Villages CDC in the development of a greenway plan.  The Greenway Collaborative provided expertise for the development of bicycle and pedestrian facilities for the plan.  This included a detailed inventory and analysis of the roadway segments, potential off-road trail connections, a block-size analysis, the primary lead and facilitator for the web survey and detailed recommendations for the proposed alternatives.
