Greenways And Trails Projects

The Florida Greenways and Trails Council will start two days of meetings and consider numerous projects for designation as parts of the Florida Greenways and Trails System.

The Florida Greenways and Trails Council (FGTC) was established pursuant to 260.0142, Florida Statutes. Among its duties, the Council serves to advise the Florida Department of Environmental Protection on greenway and trail related issues, promote intergovernmental cooperation and private partnerships for developing the greenways and trails system, recommend priorities for critical links in the system, and provide funding recommendations for developing and managing the system.

The council typically meets four times a year at various locations throughout the state.
