Whether for recreation, wildlife preservation, or scenic variety, greenbelts help make a community more hospitable. Greenbelts give communities a feeling of connectedness -- to each other, to nature, to our inner need for tranquility. Greenbelts make one feel like you are "home," away from the hustle and bustle of busy, demanding schedules. They are mini-vacations, respites, and reminders to take time to enjoy the really important things of life.
City planners and housing developers are discovering that greenbelts improve property values and make their communities more attractive to investors and businesses. Greenbelts have a way of saying to newcomers, "Our community looks out for the total needs of our citizens. We want you to enjoy all that our community has to offer!"
