Group offers green plan for Glasgow

GLASGOW — The first public meeting regarding the possible development of a greenway around the city of Glasgow is scheduled for the first week in August.

During the meeting, city residents will be invited to give their input on the proposed project which will involve the creation of a corridor that will link green spaces, such as parks, with schools and businesses around town.

Information collected during the upcoming meeting and  future meetings will be taken into consideration when the Joint City-County Planning Commission develops a master plan for the project.  

“If you look across the state, there are a lot of cities that are preparing, or already have plans for greenways and greenbelts,” said Kevin Myatt, planning director.

A greenway will serve as an alternative mode of transportation, whether people use it for walking, running or riding their bicycles.

“The idea has been discussed for a while and was brought to my attention by several within the community,” said Mayor Rhonda Trautman. “Bowling Green recently went through a process similar to what we are doing; the process includes setting priorities, solicitation of public input and recommendations for a detailed greenway master plan. The plan will be used as part of grant applications and transportation planning.”
