Nominations are open for official state greenway designations.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the Connecticut Greenways Council are collecting submissions until May 1.
An official designation by the Greenways Council recognizes a greenway as an open space that not only meets the definition of a greenway, but also enhances the community and is supported by local government initiatives, according to a press release announcing the nominations.
Designated greenways will be listed in a subsequent revision of the State Plan of Conservation and Development and may receive increased consideration for a variety of grants. There are currently 71 designated greenways in Connecticut, including one in New Milford, which joined the list last year. For further information click on image.
