CHEROKEE COUNTY, GA (May 17, 2024) – Members of the public joined Cherokee County and partners for two in-person open houses and an online information session this week to get a first glimpse of the approach to a master plan encompassing all current and future greenways and trails in Cherokee County.

A project website that allows residents to provide input via a survey and interactive map will be open until June 30.

In November, the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners engaged Gresham Smith for professional services to create the first-ever countywide Greenways & Trails Master Plan. The goal of the plan is to establish an intentional and cohesive approach to identifying potential locations for future trails, prioritizing trail connections and allocating funding for new projects with the cities and adjacent counties to develop the network.

The master plan will provide a framework and strategy for connecting the segments of trail, for connecting to key places and providing alternative options for transportation.

“For many years, the county and its cities have been working independently on trail creation, and we have a great network, from Woodstock’s Greenways Trail to Blankets Creek and Garland Mountain,” said Community Services Agency Director Bryan Reynolds. “The intent of this master plan is to bring together stakeholders to create an all-encompassing plan for our county as a whole. Public participation is vital to the success of this process.”
