In order to excite and alert trail users to the new trail system, it needs to have a crisp, clean brand and an inviting amenity package. To create this sense of excitement and pride, a logo was developed unifying all the trails within the county. The accompanying amenity package was designed with local influences and cohesion with existing standards in mind.
Greenway trails should be designed and constructed in accordance with certain guidelines developed by various governmental agencies. All standards proposed for the Flint River Trails are intended to meet or exceed the guidelines listed below:
- •AASHTO Guide to Development of Bicycle Facilities, 1999
- MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices), 2009
- ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements
- NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide, 2011
