Cuyahoga Greenways is an effort to develop an interconnected system of greenways and trails that connect with parks and public transportation, creating a comprehensive countywide network. The greenway system will provide recreation opportunities and alternative transportation options for moving around the county, improving the community’s health, well-being, and economic vitality.
Thank you to everyone who shared their ideas at the initial Cuyahoga Greenways public meetings. If you were unable to attend, please tell us your priorities by completing our public survey.
Funded by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) through their Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative (TLCI), the multi-modal transportation project includes outreach and coordination with multiple organizations, municipalities, and the public to develop this robust transportation and open space network.
Project partners include:
As a tool for improving transportation, the Cuyahoga Greenways system will provide more than just new links between the communities of Cuyahoga County. The benefits of the Greenways system will stretch beyond transportation to include new recreation opportunities, advance public health, increase economic strength, and preserve natural resources.
By taking the successes and lessons of the Eastside Greenway and applying them to all of Cuyahoga County, the Cuyahoga Greenways plan aims to connect and benefit all county residents. We encourage you to participate in the first round of Public Meetings to review preliminary ideas and help shape the plan with your ideas and opinions. Each meeting will be tailored to its region and will feature a presentation, public survey, and project boards, plus Q&A and discussions with the Core Team, including representatives from local municipalities, agencies, and non-profit organizations involved in the process.
