Greenbelt task force needs input

The Green River Greenbelt Task Force is looking for input from residents about their thoughts on the future of the Greenbelt.

The task force’s members want to update the Greenbelt’s master plan based on new needs, opportunities and the desires of residents. The original plan was drafted 30 years ago. It was created with input from more than 100 residents and several businesses and governmental agencies.

The survey can be found online and should take most people five minutes to complete. It asks about which portions of the Greenbelt are used and valued, as well as what features people would like added. People who complete the survey can also register for a giveaway featuring two $50 gift certificates.

An open house is set for Aug. 17 at Western Wyoming Community College’s Green River Center from 6-8 p.m., to review the current plan.

The task force will have a booth at River Fest on Expedition Island where volunteers can help residents fill out the survey. Residents can also purchase Greenbelt artwork as the booth as well, which will help fund the cost of producing the master plan.

Residents interested in assisting the task force can contact the task force’s chairman, John Freeman by emailing him at or the Green River Parks and Recreation Department at 872-6151.
