NWPA Greenways Plan

In August 2001, The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) released Pennsylvania’s Greenways: An Action Plan for Creating Connections. The plan launched the Pennsylvania’s Greenways Program, an initiative designed to preserve and develop an interconnecting network of recreational trails and environmental greenways throughout the Commonwealth.

As part of this initiative, Erie County partnered with seven other counties and the Northwest Regional Planning and Development Commission to create the Northwest Pennsylvania Regional Greenways Plan. The project included the development of eight individual county plans. 

Below is the final draft for the Erie County Greenways Plan.
