Greenspace Advisory Board Background Information

The City of Auburn stands at the threshold of significant growth. The City Council's longstanding commitment to the concept of improvement through planned change coupled with a history of interest in and concern about open space preservation led to the appointment of a "Greenspace Task Force" in October 1999. The Task Force was charged with making a report on the following items:

  1. to study existing sidewalk and open space conditions in the City;
  2. to consider funding sources and potential methods for future land acquisition;
  3. to propose a greenways master plan that identifies corridors for alternative non-motorized transportation and that enhances protection of environmentally sensitive areas; and
  4. to make recommendations for implementation of the proposed greenways plan.

This report was released in February 2001. The Greenspace Advisory Board developed due to a need to continue to perform these functions as the City of Auburn continues to develop and expand.
