What are Neighborhood Greenways?
*Greenways are low volume neighborhood streets generally one off of the main arterial that maintain motorized vehicle traffic at low enough speeds to encourage people who live, work, and play in a neighborhood to fully use their public right-of-way. * Greenways increase public safety, connect communities, and improve public infrastructure for a cleaner and more equitable environment. * Greenways connect community resources such as schools, community buildings, parks, and neighborhood business districts. * Greenways are designed to make all people feel comfortable using the public right-of-way, including children, seniors, and more vulnerable people. * Greenways are often but not always designed to create a more park-like setting in the public right-of-way with green infrastructure features such street trees, community gardens, and bio-swales. * Greenways are NOT dedicated bikeways. Motorized vehicles can still drive and park on greenways. * Greenways are engineered to prioritize walking and biking, with the added benefit of decreasing traffic injuries and fatalities.
