We Want to Hear from You! Share Input for the Brandywine Creek Greenway in Delaware.
Delaware Greenways is collaborating with the Brandywine Conservancy, Delaware Greenways, New Castle County, the City of Wilmington, WILMAPCO, DelDOT, DNREC, The Conservation Fund, Delaware Nature Society, The Nature Conservancy, and others on a plan to preserve and enhance the natural, cultural, historic, recreational resources, and trails surrounding the Brandywine Creek in Delaware. And we need your feedback!
What is the Brandywine Creek Greenway? The Brandywine Creek Greenway is a connected network of natural, cultural, and recreational public lands and privately protected open space along both sides of the Brandywine Creek. It begins 40 miles upstream in Honey Brook Township, Pennsylvania and ends at the City of Wilmington Riverfront in Delaware.
What is the Brandywine Creek Greenway in Delaware? The Greenway means different things to different communities depending upon their location along the Brandywine. For example, rural communities may focus on preserving and enhancing large places and wide connections, such as farms, forests, and stream banks, and while suburban and urban communities may focus on preserving and enhancing a few smaller places and narrower connections that remain, such as historic structures, trails, and neighborhood green spaces.
How Can You Get Involved? Your feedback will provide planners with a better understanding of the places and connections that are important to you in New Castle County and the City of Wilmington. There will be community open houses held in March and April. Pick any one of five dates and locations that is convenient for you and feel free to come any time during the times listed below. There is no formal presentation, rather the open houses will provide opportunities to talk with planners one-on-one and participate in activity stations. Families are welcome and light refreshments will be provided.
Unable to attend a community open house, but still want to provide input? A WikiMap is available online from March 1 through April 30, 2019. This brief, and interactive map-based survey asks that you identify your favorite places and connections in New Castle County and the City of Wilmington.
