How will a greenway help? A safe and protected greenway on our existing cleared sewage easement will help our local school bus crisis and idling car lines outside middle schools. It will help our community’s health and well-being. It will make it possible to transform car trips into walking and biking trips. It will protect wildlife and streams through creating a natural buffer zone that provide opportunities for protecting plant and animal species. And it will allow households living along and near the corridor to reduce their carbon footprint by using their cars less often.
