In our updated Greenway Design Guide, East Coast Greenway Alliance staff and volunteer partners have compiled information and resources for the planning, design, construction, promotion, and maintenance of local East Coast Greenway segments.
The Guide defines our vision of a protected, connected series of safe facilities for a continuous non-motorized route from Maine to Florida. Here you can find requirements for Greenway segment design and construction, illustrated with photographs, along with links to best-practice planning and design guidelines.
Federal, state and local elected officials, city and regional planners, and local advocates will find requirements for Greenway segment design and construction. New and updated sections include a list of technical resources, a glossary of common terms and acronyms, and a new section on allowable on-road facilities.
