by Griffin, Sven Troy

Abstract (Summary)
This study highlights the importance of incorporating greenways in city planning and addresses issues related to their acquisition. It documents what comprises greenways and why they are beneficial for the smart growth of a city. The research compares and evaluates methods of land acquisition by conducting a literature review and by analyzing the practices at the study site of the City of College Station, Texas. Combining the best-fit method with GIS modeling, a ranking system has been developed and used to identify likely greenway locations in College Station as a case study. Results indicate the validity and feasibility of this ranking system.
