ALBANY — The state has released drafts of the scoping and environmental documents for the Draft Statewide Greenways Plan.
The state is preparing a plan for a comprehensive statewide system of non-motorized multi-use trails, also known as Greenway Trails. The new plan will address trail needs and trends. It will also compile a GIS inventory of existing and proposed shared-use trails across the state.

Written comments will be accepted until May 31, and may be submitted to StatewideTrailsPlan@parks.ny.gov..
