Benefits of Alternative Transportation

Greenway Implementation
The Valparaiso Pathways and Greenways System is designed to address and resolve community issues that affect the current and future environmental and economic health of the Valparaiso metropolitan area.

Greenways have been implemented by communities throughout the United States in order to provide recreation and alternative transportation, control flooding, improve water quality, protect wetlands, conserve habitat for wildlife, and buffer adjacent land uses.

Increasing Value
Greenways typically incorporate varying types and intensities of human use, including pathways for recreation and travel and passive and active park facilities, including open playing fields. Greenways increase the value of adjacent private properties as an amenity to residential and commercial development.
