Speaker: Tom Wald

The Red Line Parkway Initiative was founded in 2017 to support a 32-mile linear park along an existing commuter rail line in Austin. We will discuss the full cycle from conception through the present, and our plans for implementation and growth. The session will cover:

  • An overview of our current plan for the Red Line Parkway;
  • Organizational start-up steps, including beginning with what we had;
  • An overview of our initial prospectus, i.e. our business plan;
  • Implementation challenges, including coordination among government entities, engineering constraints, and trail funding;
  • Successes and lessons learned in our first six months with paid, professional staff;
  • Our plans for the next few years of the organization and the parkway.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify signature trail opportunities in your area and complete initial feasibility research
  • Develop your organization’s plan
  • Secure your initial organizational resources, and build strong and broad support for your trail and organization

Be able to:

  • Recognize significant trail opportunities;
  • List several components or amenities that differentiate a signature trail, greenway, or parkway from a simple trail project;
  • Assess the feasibility of your trail opportunity or identify visionary experts who can do so;
  • Put together your prospectus (business plan) that will attract initial donor and stakeholder interest, based on your initial ideas, knowledge, and information;
  • Describe several major steps to create your signature trail project, in the role as a civic advocate;
  • Describe your nonprofit’s role in creating a successful trail, for varied audiences: prospective major donor, government staff, elected official, resident stakeholder, peer organization, other local advocates, prospective grantor, and your friends and colleagues.
