Florida Greenways and Trails System Plan and Maps

 
 

A New Vision for the Florida Greenways and Trails System (FGTS) ... 2018-2022 Plan and Maps Update

 

Public input regarding the Draft 2018-2022 Plan will be accepted until August 31, 2018. Send comments to Samantha.Browne@FloridaDEP.gov. The FGTS Plan establishes the vision for implementing a connected statewide system of greenways and trails for recreation, conservation, alternative transportation, healthy lifestyles, a vibrant economy and a high quality of life. The original FGTS Plan was completed in 1998 and adopted by the Florida Legislature in 1999, laying the groundwork for many programs, projects and initiatives that exist today. The updated FGTS Plan and maps will guide implementation of the connected statewide trail system from 2018 through 2022.

The Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT) has updated its statewide opportunity and priority trail maps. Many trails are eligible for certain types of funding if they are on one or both maps.

As part of the update, OGT held 14 public workshops from September through early December of 2017 throughout the state to receive input from trail users, local planners and the public. OGT also received hundreds of e-mails and letters by the December 15 deadline. The input will help to shape the direction of trails for years to come! The final draft of the maps were approved with some modifications by the Florida Greenways and Trails Council at their January 11 meeting in Tallahassee. The final versions are posted below. The draft Plan will be brought before the Council at a later date.
