Ohio River Greenway

Advisory Committees

Please go to the Meetings and Minutes page of this website for meeting information 

The Greenway Commission formally approved the formation of Advisory Committees in March 2008.

The main goals of the advisory committees are as follows:

  1. Garner widespread support of the Greenway;
  2. Provide forum for connecting key people in communities to better the Greenway project;
  3. Coordination of timing of events least likely to conflict with other community activities;
  4. Better utilize the assets and organizations accessible to this project;
  5. Focus on the assets of each commission member.

Each advisory committee makes recommendations to the Commission for consideration.  The advisory committees represent open forums for communicating ideas for the progress of the Ohio River Greenway.  All formal decisions are made by the Ohio River Greenway Development Commission.
