DVRPC RCC Listening Session - The Economic Value of Open Space

The DVRPC Regional Citizens Committee periodically holds special evening listening sessions to allow people who normally cannot participate in the planning process during regular business hours. Each session focuses on a different regional land use and transportation planning topic.

The next session will be a presentation and discussion of the economic value of Open Space (including trails, which are often designated as linear parks). It's a relevant topic for the times - Communicating the economic benefits of investments in trails and open space is an important argument to put in front of a Congress and State Government that is focused on budget cuts.
