Greenways for Pittsburgh 2.0

City of Pittsburgh, Department of City Planning
Greenways 2.0 is an initiative to reestablish and manage a greenways system in Pittsburgh.  It includes a Policy Guide that sets forth the technical basis for legal designation of greenways and provides for community stewardship of greenways by citizens and non-profits in cooperation with the city.  It also includes a Resource Guide, an easy-to-read and graphic toolkit to guide citizens on stewarding a greenway.  Resources range from funding and project ideas to deer management options to website mockups.  Greenways 2.0 outlines the means for Pittsburgh to have more capacity and be more effective in permanently conserving open space for the benefit of adjacent neighborhoods and the general public.
