Greenways and Open Space Network Plan

This study identifies opportunities and a methodology for developing a township-wide network of public trails and greenways corridors.  The plan proposes a system for residents to connect to local and regional parks, regional greenways, adjacent municipalities, existing trails, as well as community facilities and natural and cultural resources.  It is important to note that this is a concept plan, and no determination has been made if the township will proceed with a trail in any specific location.

This updated plan was edited slightly in response to feedback received from the public.  In short, diagrams were revised to add connections west of Route 202 and north of Route 1 and the narrative was revised (page 42) to reflect the same.
This updated plan was adopted at the Board of Supervisors
