The Oconee River Greenway is a privilege and a responsibility



The expansion efforts allow visitors twice the natural area to enjoy, and we must all remember to show care and concern for the greenway because it provides so much to this community.

We all have a responsibility to uphold by not disrespecting the area, and demonstrating this minimal level of citizen stewardship allows us to reciprocate in some small way. The greenway project is such a tremendous undertaking with a potentially major impact on the local community, it’s only right that we respect it by showing care and concern for this natural jewel that enhances Baldwin County in such a special way.

Those who frequently ignore their responsibility take something away from all of us who wish to enjoy the greenway with our families and friends, and they should not get a free pass in doing so.

It isn't about complying with rules as much as caring for our community. The Oconee River Greenway is just one example where thoughtless and selfish behavior should be avoided.
