Miami-Dade trail planners honored

Trail planning by Miami-Dade Parks & Recreation was honored this month by Florida members of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The group recognized the department's Trail Design Guidelines & Benefits Study, which sets out standards for county trails and greenways. The work also provides a framework for analyzing trail benefits such as increased access, reduction of motor trips and air pollution, and effects on property values. Project manager for the study was Mark Heinicke.
