More than 70 individuals attended a presentation at the Cannon Centre last week to learn more about preliminary plans to add walking and bicycle trails in downtown Greer. Comments were given on where those proposed trails should be expanded.

Jean Crowther of Alta Planning & Design led the program on the proposed connected network of on- and off-street bikeways, walkways, and trails that provide safe and family-friendly access between neighborhoods and community destinations for all ages and abilities.

The plan is an outgrowth from the Greer Community Master Plan.

Crowther said implementing the recommendations described in the plan will complement, connect and enhance existing assets of the community, such as Greer City Park, Century Park, Main Street, and Greer Station among others. Recommendations may also better connect Greer with neighboring communities such as Taylors, Duncan, and Greenville.

“When realized, this plan will enhance the economic vitality, cultural assets, and overall health and well-being of Greer and its residents,” Crowther said.

Those who were unable to attend the workshop may add their thoughts online on an interactive Wikimap.

A final report with an implementation plan and cost estimates is expected to be presented to Greer City Council in October.
