The plan addresses many difficult conflict points that discourage bicycle and pedestrian transportation. A geographic information system (GIS) was developed for the project to support decision-making as well as record public input.  The Greenway Collaborative’s role focused on the GIS mapping, public-involvement meetings, and system analysis. The plan is currently being enthusiastically implemented.
