Blue Trail Public Meetings
July 2015 (see schedule below)

 
The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) was awarded a grant to partner with the U.S. Department of Interior’s National Park Service to lead the formation of a BCD Regional Blueways Coalition. This coalition of stakeholders and citizens will develop a plan to attract a variety of users to the regional water trails and related outdoor recreational opportunities. This project was supplemented by a grant from the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium to the College of Charleston for assistance with mapping, data collection and public input. There are currently recreational opportunities available on parts of the region’s major waterways, but little has been done to inventory and market a regional blue trails system that takes advantage of the connectivity of the rivers. Five public meetings will be held in the region to obtain community input on programs, projects, policies and promotion of the region’s waterways:
