Did you attend one of the community meetings for Our One Mile or submit your ideas on-line? Do you wonder what happened to all those great ideas for the routes that you travel most often or the places you wish you could get to by foot or bicycle?
See the results on Tuesday, Feb. 21, when Regions Bank and the Freshwater Land Trust unveil the Our One Mile greenway master plan, along with the overall name for the system, also chosen out of so many submitted by people across our community.
Our One Mile is really OUR one mile, because this is the system that will help to guide the Freshwater Land Trust and others. It fits several important strategies for the Community Foundation, as we seek to expand and improve public green space in order to keep our communities are sustainable, livable and vibrant and as we work with a variety of initiatives through the Health Action Partnership so people can lead healthy lives.
Find out more about this special event, which starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Birmingham Museum of Art, or contact Heather Forbush for questions or to RSVP.
