Survey for Planning an Appomattox River Water Trail
The Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) is partnering with a Virginia Commonwealth University graduate student to develop a lower Appomattox River water trail master plan (or blueway master plan) as a capstone project. The insight that you provide by completing this survey will be used to inform the plan. Once developed, the plan will be available for public review. Thank you for taking the time to participate in this survey. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete. The answers you provide in this study are confidential.
A water trail (or blueway) is a designated route along a waterway for paddlecraft like canoes, kayaks and stand up paddle boards (SUP). Water trails have well-developed signage and access sites for putting in/taking out paddlecraft and can help connect paddlers to significant historical, environmental and cultural points of interest, and often include nearby amenities like restrooms and picnic shelters.
The study area for this survey is along the lower Appomattox River which is the 20+ river miles between the Lake Chesdin Dam to where the Appomattox River meets the James River in the City of Hopewell which is also the area of the developing Appomattox River Trail greenway. This area is shown in the maps below, and it includes the Counties of Chesterfield, Dinwiddie and Prince George and the Cities of Petersburg, Colonial Heights and Hopewell. Together, these independent cities and portions of the counties that surround the Appomattox basin make up the Tri Cities Region served by FOLAR.
Please feel free to share this survey with your neighbors, co-workers, family and friends. Thank you again for participating in this survey.
This survey will remain open through July 4th, 2020.
