Greenway Phase 3 Citizen Input

Project Summary

The City's Greenway Master Plan envisions a network of safe and beautiful trails connecting all the major parks and neighborhoods of the City. The South River Greenway Phase 3 is an attempt to continue realization of that plan. Phase III has been funded by a state grant that cannot be used for other purposes. In September of 2019, responding to a lengthy period of citizen outreach, City Council instructed staff to shift from the originally proposed route and focus on 14th Street.

The objective of this phase is to design and construct a safe and enjoyable experience for pedestrians and bicyclists within the existing right of way to Ridgeview Park from the current terminus of the Greenway at Loth Springs.

City Staff along with McCormick Taylor Engineering will be holding a design public hearing on Wednesday, August 4th, 2021 from 5-7pm at the Waynesboro Public Library.
