On June 23, 2021, NVRC consultant BBC provided a webinar on the approach and data sets to be used for the 2021 Equity and Economic Benefits Study of completion of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail in Northern Virginia. The study will provide a community impact assessment of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail in Northern Virginia that includes an assessment of health equity, social equity, transportation, and economic impacts of improving trail access, closing trail gaps, and making safe connections to nearby communities. The objective of the study is to assess the public health and community-related impacts associated with use of the trail and to provide recommendations to maximize those impacts and help justify the investment of public funds.
The timeline will be updated as events are determined.
