The following documents and resources supplement the Design Guidelines outlined in this section of the Great Rivers Greenway website and provide additional guidance to inform the design of future greenway projects:

  • Community Engagement Strategy: This document describes strategies, core values and best practices to lay out a roadmap for how to engage the community in a meaningful way.
  • Interpretive Strategy: This document is meant to provide a framework for developing interpretive and storytelling opportunities throughout our network of greenways.
