Please join Lambda Alpha International’s Baltimore Chapter for our Virtual Presentation on Wednesday, June 16th at noon: The Baltimore Greenway Trail Network. We are also delighted to announce that we will meet in person for our July Summer Outing on July 22nd. The Summer Outing will also highlight The Baltimore Greenway Trail Network and allow members to either walk or bike a portion of the network.  Details will follow.
The Baltimore Greenway Trail Network
The 35-mile network of The Greenway will link 75 neighborhoods across the City and only has 10 miles left to be completed.  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. Click here for a map of the Greenway Trail Network.The presentation will feature Jim Brown of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and Jeff La Noue of the City of Baltimore Planning Department.Click here to register.
