Ohio River Greenway Master Plan Refresh: Greenway 2040 

Standard

Greenway 2040 is an effort to refresh The Ohio River Greenway Master Plan, sponsored by the Ogle Foundation.

The “refreshed” master plan will identify opportunities to provide a linear park that will preserve and enhance the aesthetic character of the Greenway and the surrounding areas, while encouraging additional use of the facilities.

For more information or to engage, go to:  WWW.GREENWAY 2040.ORG.

Cary Stemle, Secretary for the Friends of the Ohio River Greenway, states in his recent blog: “These recent developments around the Ohio River Greenway are exciting. And the involvement of 21st Century Parks seems especially significant because it acknowledges the interconnectedness of Louisville and Southern Indiana.”
