MillionMile Greenway awarded the George Washington Regional Commission (GWRC) a technical grant for greenway planning on a regional scale in Northern Virginia. The GWRC is the planning commission for Virginia Planning District 16, which includes the City of Fredericksburg and Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties. Greenspace and trail planning by the GWRC will protect critical greenways in some of the highest profile suburban areas of the United States.
Through our work with Spotsylvania Greenways Initiative nearby, officials of the George Washington Regional Commission applied for a technical grant from MMG. Approved in 2009, the technical team, led by MMG board member Jesse Glasgow began working with the GWRC in the fall.
This result will be detailed maps of the region which highlight areas most suitable for new trails with emphasis on connecting featured destinations and cultural amenities.
