The Anaheim OUTDOORS project is a city-wide undertaking that is evaluating non-motorized connections throughout the city, but especially between the Platinum Triangle, Downtown Anaheim, Anaheim Resort and Anaheim Canyon. The ultimate goal of the Anaheim OUTDOORS Plan is to identify projects that will create a minimum of 100 acres of new green space throughout the city, while at the same time reducing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions consistent with the California Global Warming Act of 2006. By providing more desirable walkways that encourage alternative modes of transportation, GHG emissions associated with automobiles will be reduced.
In addition to increasing green space throughout the City, the Anaheim OUTDOORS Plan will focus on developing a system of green corridors connecting residents, visitors, and employees to both existing and planned high-density urban areas. The Plan will identify projects that emphasize shade trees, pocket parks and open spaces, multi-modal non-motorized trails and pathways, demonstration gardens, wildlife corridors, bioswales, and storm water filtration and collections systems, and a city-wide plant palette.
