 Last year Memphis received $2.6M grant to involve citizens in creating a  a Greenprint Sustainability Plan - a guide for our region on how to connect and provide accessibility using green space. It's to include parks, natural areas, bike lanes, walking paths, waterways, open space, ..., through Memphis neighborhoods, into Shelby County and surrounding areas in TN, AR, and MS.

We know it's important to protect area flood plains, floodways, and acquifer recharge areas. Could they give us a base for how to connect? Here's a map; click to enlarge.
