The City of Green River, Utah, was awarded technical assistance by the National Parks Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program in October 2013. Technical assistance was provided for the preparation of a Trails Opportunity Plan. The overall objective of creating the plan was to provide a guide for the City of Green River that could be used to implement a trails system in Green River.
This plan represents the planning process that has taken place in Green River, Utah, during 2013- 2014. It documents the work of the Green River Trails Committee in defining the City of Green River’s objectives in regards to trails planning. Beginning with a kickoff meeting on February 4, 2014, a group of potential trails committee stakeholders convened. Over the course of the spring, summer, and fall of 2014, this group of stakeholders was refined to represent various stakeholders and organizations. Several organizations were identified as stakeholders during the discussion of trail development and planning in Green River.
These organizations included:
- Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Moab Field Office
- BLM, Price Field Office
- City of Green River
- Emery County
- Green River Business Potluck
