At this free 1000 Friends of Florida webinar, Doug Alderson, Assistant Bureau Chief for the Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT), and Florida Greenways and Trails Foundation President Dale Allen will discuss the Florida Greenways and Trails System (FGTS) Plan 2013-2017. The plan outlines the new vision for the FGTS and defines the role of the FGTS in advancing Florida’s economy, tourism, health, transportation, recreation, conservation and quality of life. This is the first update to the FGTS Plan since the 1998 Connecting Florida’s Communities laid the groundwork to implement the many greenways and trails programs and projects that currently exist. They will discuss Florida’s priority trails network, the gaps within that system and the current process of identifying the top tier gap projects within the priority trail system.
