Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway
The Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway, Inc. (the Friends, or simply "FOGVG") is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit membership organization, incorporated in 1993.
Board of Directors
The Friends is governed by a 14 member Board of Directors composed of individuals living within the Greenway region. The Directors offer a wealth of relevant practical knowledge gained through personal experience, as well as specialized expertise in areas related to their vocational, recreational, and intellectual pursuits. To ensure continued grass roots community involvement in decision making, all chairpersons of local committees are members of the board. Local committees originally worked on clearing and maintaining trail. Now local committees help oversee sections of trail to report any problems, work on special clean-up projects, assist with the creation of trail enhancements (interpretive signs, kiosk, mile markers, benches, etc.) and decisions concerning their placement, and represent their communities on Greenway matters.
2012 Board of Directors
The Board of Directors consists of eight members elected at-large and six
local committee chairs. The goal is to have a local committee for each segment
of the Greenway corridor. At the present time there are some local committee
chair positions vacant. If you live in any of the following counties or
communities along the Greenway and would be interesting in representing
your area on the FOGVG Board, please contact us for details. Representatives
are needed for Mt. Morris, Genesee Falls-Fillmore, and Belfast-Houghton-Caneadea.
