The Greenway Commission formally approved the formation of Advisory Committees in March 2008.
The main goals of the advisory committees are as follows:
- Garner widespread support of the Greenway;
- Provide forum for connecting key people in communities to better the Greenway project;
- Coordination of timing of events least likely to conflict with other community activities;
- Better utilize the assets and organizations accessible to this project;
