Tuesday, the Leon County Commission approved its third update to its greenways Master Plan and the city commission is following suit. 

The Greenways Master Plan is a 20 year system connecting city and county trails in Leon County.  The County Commission has added three new additions and minor adjustments to improve the plan.

Senior City Planner Steve Hodges says the next step is to sit down with the public-private partnership Blueprint 2000, and focus on prioritizing and timing.

“It’s just because we got a lot of projects and we only got so much money,” Hodges says. “So we need to figure out which ones are the most appropriate projects to begin with.”

The Infrastructure tax funds the majority of the projects, but new additions like Orchard Pond, Lake South Jackson and Welannee Greenway will be funded separately.
