ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Trail designers met with Albany city leaders and outdoor lovers Monday night to get input on a master trail and greenway plan. 

Trail planners with Kaizen Collaborative unveiled their master plan to link multiple trails in and around Albany. 

They are working on a series of interconnected recreational trails and parks linking Chehaw park, downtown, Albany State University, Radium Springs and the new Rails to Trails project. 

"We would like though in the Master Plan to give a more urgent vision of about a five to ten year implementation, so that we would be able to get to the first priority trails started as soon as possible," said Greta Demayo the principal trail planner.

The consultants will take public input and continue to refine the master plan over the next 10 to 12 months.

They will hold two more public meetings before releasing the final plan.
