Connecticut is looking for nominations for new greenways.

Greenways provide space for recreation, bicycling and walking and also support economic development.

An official designation by the Greenways Council recognizes a greenway as an open space that brings improvements to the community and is supported by local government initiatives. Designated greenways may be considered for grant money.
