Division of Environmental Stewardship & Planning Releases Final Scoping Document

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (State Parks) Division of Environmental Stewardship and Planning today announced the release of the Final Scoping Document for the Draft Statewide Greenway Trails Plan and Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS).

State Parks is preparing a plan for a comprehensive statewide system of non-motorized multi-use trails (Greenway Trails) as directed by legislation signed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in November 2019 (S.4416.b/A5035B ). This Statewide Greenway Trails Plan will identify trail user types, address trail needs and trends, and discuss the benefits of trails. The draft plan will solicit input from of state and local stakeholders as well as from the general public and compile a GIS inventory of existing and proposed greenway trails across the state.

The final plan will guide decision-making, influence greenway development policy in state and local governments, and inform communities, organizations and individuals engaged in trail development and management.

The Final Scoping Document is available on the internet for viewing or downloading at: https://parks.ny.gov/inside-our-agency/master-plans.aspx. A non-digital copy of the document can be provided by the agency contact listed below.
