GNAR Toolkit

The GNAR Community Online Toolkit is designed to be a resource for planners, public officials, community members, consultants, and all others who are working in communities with access to significant natural amenities and recreation opportunities. This toolkit provides resources, case studies, model ordinances, and other tools to help GNAR communities plan for and respond to the unique planning, transportation, economic, community development, and sustainability challenges and opportunities they face. The toolkit is a living resource; it will grow and adapt in order to provide the most useful and up-to-date information possible.

Have ideas for topics we should address, thoughts about tools we should link to or develop, or suggestions for how to improve the toolkit? Let us know! Or even better: use the toolkit to share your case studies, resources, and lessons learned: GNAR@utah.edu.

All tools and resources found in this Toolkit are reviewed by members of our Technical Advisory Committee – individuals working in or closely with GNAR communities. We’d like to thank all of our partners who have contributed their thoughts and feedback in order to make this a valuable resource.
