Joins us as we speak to Ethan Abbott , Project Manager, Baltimore Greenway Trails Network, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. Following brief remarks, Ethan will answer questions from the community moderated by Civic League President, Claudia Diamond.
Only 10 miles of the 35-mile Baltimore Greenway Trail Network remains to be completed. Once completed the Greenway will link 75 neighborhoods across the City and redefine the way Baltimore City thinks about access, connectivity, and equity. Ernst & Young has projected that the $28 million expansion investment will result in a $314 million increase in property values, a $113 million increase in annual local business activity, substantial health benefits and major reductions in automobile trips.
About the speaker: Ethan Abbott is the Project Manager for the Baltimore Greenway Trail Network, a 35-mile network of multi-use trails that will link together the city’s diverse neighborhoods, cultural amenities, and outdoor resources while providing residents with increased connectivity and accessibility.
Prior to joining Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, Ethan worked for Baltimore City as a recreation programmer where he exposed the city’s residents to their natural resources; the local parks, trails, and waterways that exist in their backyard. Here he became exposed to the city’s natural environment in a way he never thought possible. Ethan has experience in community outreach and development and holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental planning from Towson University.
