2000 Greenway Study

In response to increasing community interest and awareness about greenways, the Cumberland County Planning Commission embarked on a Countywide Greenway Study in the late 1990's. The Greenway Study examined ways in which Cumberland County could create greenways and provides a framework for the establishment of greenways through a collaborative effort of public-private partnerships. The Greenway Study identified eight regional greenway corridors and outlined six recommendations. The full study and maps are available for download below:
