natural and cultural networks existing in the Town of Springdale and to present
Green Infrastructure Design Guidelines which incorporate conservation patterns &
priorities for the existing green infrastructure assets, to design methodologies to
enhance the corridor experience - whether walking or driving through this
distinctive small town - and to improve community connectivity through a variety of
open spaces, trails, and walkways.
