Tri-State Trails' Regional Trails Summit is an opportunity for local and regional trail advocates to convene and strategize ways to advance our agenda for improved trail connectivity in the Greater Cincinnati region. Below is a brief history of the Regional Trails Summit:
2013: Trail advocates met in a charrette format to envision the first ideation of what is now our Regional Trails Plan. This forum garnered the support from Interact for Health to fund our first major community outreach effort with Human Nature and the mapping of our official Regional Trails Plan. The Regional Trails Alliance was formed.
2014: The Regional Trails Alliance and Human Nature presented our first Regional Trails Plan and a Model Resolution to codify community level support for the plan.
2015: Featuring the theme, "Making Connections," the Regional Trails Alliance showcases best practices from surrounding regions and encourages OKI Regional Council of Governments to incorporate more trails into the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan. Green Umbrella announces the hiring of its first Regional Trails Coordinator, Wade Johnston.
2016: Tri-State Trails advanced the conversation forward with an agenda focused around "Making the Economic Case for Trails." We featured perspectives from the business community as a testament to the fact that trails are an economic development driver in Greater Cincinnati. Tri-State Trails addressed the need to implement infrastructure solutions that meet users where they are and discussed how we begin move in that direction.
