Local Recreation and Conservation Projects

Catawba Regional Blueways Plan: This project will ultimately develop a Regional Blueways Plan through a coalition partnership that will serve to coordinate planning efforts on the identified waterways. The efforts of the project will serve to enhance recreational opportunities, economic development, nature based tourism and environmental stewardship through the counties and outlying areas along the Catawba. RTCA will assist with identifying and analyzing existing blueway issues and opportunities and inventorying and mapping of community resources. Staff will also look to define project vision and goals and help the project partners develop a steering committee.  READ MORE
