Trails and Greenways: A Top Priority
The development of a Trails and Greenways Master Plan was a "Top Priority"
project as identified by Greenville City Council's 2006 Management Agenda. Over
the course of the next year, two public meetings were held, more than 450 public
comments were received via an on-line survey and the master plan was presented
to council in September, 2007. On January 28, 2008 City Council adopted the
Trails and Greenway's Master Plan. By doing so they formally recognized the
importance of connecting residents and visitors alike to popular destinations
throughout the City of Greenville. The Master Plan, amongst other things,
encourages physical activity, promotes safe and sustainable transportation,
stimulates economic growth and helps to protect environmental quality of open
spaces and creek and river corridors.
The City of Greenville is actively working to implement the Trails and Greenways
Master Plan and promote the use of trails throughout the City. Please take time

The Augusta Street Bike Boulevard
The Augusta Street Bicycle Boulevard is designed to get bicyclists off of Augusta
Street while simultaneously providing orientation and wayfinding throughout the
adjacent neighborhoods. Signage will assist bicyclists in routing to neighborhood
parks, schools, the Kroc Center, and the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Public comment from
a February workshop has been incorporated into a redesigned plan which will be presented
back to the public at 6 pm, May 8, 2014, at the Augusta Road Library.
