As the State of Georgia and Newton County continue to lag the nation in recovering from recession, most economists agree our region must rethink strategies for growth and economic health. In the Trail Talk Blog, our Chairman Maurice Carter makes the case for greenway trails as an essential element in Newton County's toolbox for competing in the 21st Century economy.
Speaking of Trails
Building a greenway trail system requires a community working together with a vision, commitment, and clear understanding of who, what, why, where, when, and how. Signs, columns, and letters are not the answer. Dialog is the answer. We love talking with people about how walking and biking trails can benefit our community.
