Title: Regionalization


1
The Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway
PICTURE THIS. An 100 mile-long green band of
protected open space running through fertile
farmlands, lush woodlands, over gently rolling
hills, and alongside scenic waterways.
  • Traverses 4 counties with a
  • combined population of 665,000
  • people which equals approximately
  • 6 of Ohios population.

2
Regional Connection
  • The Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway Coalition
    was formalized as a 501C3 over a decade ago in
    order to support one another in planning and
    developing The Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway
  • The Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway Coalition
    is comprised of representatives from four
    northeastern Ohio counties Ashtabula, Trumbull,
    Mahoning and Columbiana

3
Regionalization
  • What are the benefits of regionalization?
  • In the case of The Great Ohio Lake-To-River
    Greenway Coalition there is revenue and resource
    sharing in the planning and development of a
    100-mile long regional trail system.
  • A four-county coalition is influential and
    supportive of changes that help our cause

4
Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway Collaboration
  • Work collaboratively in order to develop and
    submit funding proposals for planning brochures,
    design and development of trails
  • In 2006, the Coalition was awarded the Kodak
    American Greenways Grant to cover reproduction
    costs of the Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway
    planning brochure
  • Layout and design services are being contributed
    by Mill Creek MetroParks staff

5
Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway Progress
  • Because of the regional collaboration and sharing
    of information and resources, almost 60 miles of
    The Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway has been
    completed to date
  • Next year, another 11 miles is scheduled for
    construction
  • The remaining 30 miles are currently being planned

6
  • Ashtabula County MetroParks has completed
    approximately 20 miles of paved, ten-foot wide
    trail. Starting at the Trumbull County line the
    trail stretches 3.5 miles north to Hague Road. A
    6 mile stretch is unpaved to Callender Road where
    the trail begins again. There are another 16
    miles of paved trail from this point north to W.
    52nd Street in Ashtabula City.
  • Construction on the 6 miles between Hague and
    Callender Road is scheduled for Summer 2007.
  • The 3.5 mile North Shore Trail segment of the
    Great Ohio Lake -To-River Greenway is in the
    planning stages from W. 52nd Street in Ashtabula
    City north to Lake Erie.

7
  • Trumbull County Metro Parks has completed
    approximately 15 miles of paved, ten-foot wide
    trail. Starting at the northern Trumbull County
    line the trail stretches south 14.65 miles to
    Champion East Road in Champion Township.
  • The Ashtabula and Trumbull County sections of the
    Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway are constructed
    on the former Penn Central 714 line and are
    jointly referred to as the Western Reserve
    Greenway.
  • The next 2.2 mile phase of the Western Reserve
    Greenway in Trumbull County will be constructed
    through a grant received from the Clean Ohio
    Trail fund, the Eastgate Regional Council of
    Governments and the Trumbull County
    Commissioners.
  • The Trumbull County Metro Parks will also work on
    completing the final connection in the county
    between Niles and Warren

8
  • The City of Warren is currently working on the
    design phase of the Old Warren Bikeway section of
    the Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway.
  • The proposed route is a little over 2 miles long
    and traverses the former BO rail line
    right-of-way (north from the city limits)
    purchased with Clean Ohio funds several years
    ago, various city streets and an Ohio Edison
    Easement right-of-way terminating at North River
    Road.
  • The City of Warren received over a 1,000,000
    through Congressman Tim Ryans office to
    construct the Bikeway. The remainder of the
    funds needed for construction will be programmed
    through the Eastgate Regional Council of
    Governments.

9
  • The City of Niles is scheduled to construct
    approximately 4.5 miles of paved, ten-foot wide
    trail along the former Niles and New Lisbon
    Railroad right-of-way and the former Norfolk
    Southern Railroad right-of-way terminating at a
    proposed staging area near the intersection of
    State Route 169 and State Route 46.

10
  • Mill Creek MetroParks in Mahoning County
    completed 11 miles of paved trail along the Great
    Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway in 2000.
  • The trail is constructed on the former Niles and
    New Lisbon Railroad right-of-way
  • The northern termini of the trail in Mahoning
    County is located at the Mahoning/Trumbull County
    line. The southern termini is located at Western
    Reserve Road in Canfield Township.
  • The award-winning Kirk Road Depot opened in 2003.
    The staging area provides a fifty-car parking
    lot, restrooms, a water fountain, a picnic
    pavilion, and a location for educational and
    trailside activities.
  • Plans for completing the remaining 6 miles of
    trail south from Western Reserve Road to the
    Columbiana County border are underway.

11
  • Columbiana County Park District completed 11
    miles of paved trail along the Great Ohio
    Lake-To-River Greenway in 2000.
  • The trail is constructed between the Village of
    Leetonia in the northern section of Columbiana
    County and the Village of Lisbon in central
    Columbiania County. The trail runs parallel to
    Little Beaver Creek, one of Ohios Nationally
    Designated Scenic Rivers and is constructed on
    the former Erie-Lackawanna railroad right-of-way.
  • The Columbiana County Park District and the
    Friends of the Little Beaver Creek Greenway are
    planning the northern connection of the trail to
    the Mill Creek MetroParks Bikeway at the
    Mahoning/Columbiana county border.
  • The proposed southern connection to the Ohio
    River at East Liverpool is in the planning stages
    as well.

12
Plans for the Future
  • The Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway Coalition
    will continue to work together in order to share
    information on funding, promote the completion of
    the Great Ohio Lake-To-River Greenway and work
    towards developing regional projects that span
    all four counties including planning fundraising
    events on the trail and developing historical and
    interpretive signage for the entire 100-mile long
    trail.
