For every $1 of Summit County money, an additional $12 is leveraged in federal, state and local investment.

Trail connectivity is a key goal for partners across Summit County, as outlined in the Summit County Trail & Greenway Plan. This plan identifies potential trails and greenways in Summit County, along with their connections to the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail and other trail and greenway networks.

Since 2001, Summit County Executives and Summit County Council have supported this popular trail and greenspace plan by dedicating money toward grant projects identified on the plan. The Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition is proud to facilitate this grant program on behalf of Summit County, and work with partners to continue development of our trail networks.
