(This amendment provides a general fund grant of $100,000 in each year to the Roanoke Valley Greenway Commission to continue development of the Roanoke River Greenway, a 25-mile stretch of bicycle and pedestrian paths linking Green Hill Park to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Virginia's Explore Park. Three miles of this greenway have been constructed, and seven additional miles will be constructed during the next two years. The Roanoke Valley Greenway Commission includes representatives from the cities of Roanoke and Salem, Roanoke County, and the Town of Vinton. Since the commission's establishment in 1995, the four localities have committed more than $2.8 million to greenway funding.)
