Transforming Our Downtowns into Main Street Greenways

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Communities are now strengthening connections between their downtowns and nearby trails, stream valleys, and open spaces. By establishing their downtown as an extension of these greenway systems, they enhance its vibrancy and foster economic development. Join us as we show you how to transform your downtown into a Main Street Greenway by focusing upon ways to make it more walkable, greener, and environmentally sustainable. These three fundamental principles will be explained through examples from many of Montgomery County’s boroughs and villages. Participants then take a walking tour of a local downtown to practice recognizing specific improvement opportunities, which they can use to make their own downtown into a greenway. The event is part of Planning Smarter Montco 2019, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach, and corresponds to the Connected Communities theme contained in "Montco 2040: A Shared Vision," Montgomery County’s comprehensive plan.
