North Oconee River Greenway Network plan
MetadataShow full item record
This study examines two proposed sections of the North Oconee River Greenway Network, the Horseshoe Bend Connector and the Botanical Gardens Connector, identifying funding opportunities to implement the project and potential constraints. The Horseshoe Bend Connector could use the creation of a Tax Allocation District in combination with selling or leasing excess land to promote development adjacent to the greenway and provide the necessary funding to construct the path. Athens-Clarke County could then partner with the University of Georgia utilizing the proposed site for future expansion of the College of Veterinary Medicine to reconnect to the North Oconee River. This study provides the Greenway Commission as well as the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government a detailed plan that can be used toward future decisions regarding these portions of the North Oconee River Greenway Network.
