Consideration of a Resolution to Accept the Green River Greenbelt Master Plan
Through a technical assistance grant obtained through the National Parks River and Trails Conservation Assistance Program the Greenbelt Taskforce Master Plan has been rewritten. The process included a robust public outreach effort including public open houses, a general survey with 760 responses, focused working groups featuring a cross-section of the community, booths for public comment at public events, a public hearing and a final 6-week open comment period. It has almost been a 2-year process. The chair of the Greenbelt Taskforce, John Freeman, has made presentations on the results of public engagement in several public settings including Green River City Council Meetings, Sweetwater County Commissioners Meetings and the Sweetwater Outdoor Recreation Collaborative to name a few. The document will be vital in the future development and use of the Greenbelt and compliments other City planning documents. The draft form of the document has already aided the City and Greenbelt Task Force in obtaining several grants and will be key to obtaining more grants in the future.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution accepting the Green River Greenbelt Master Plan.
