MORE INFO Did you miss the public meeting on Active Transportation? There was a great discussion on what would make walking and cycling safer, how or where to encourage snowshoeing or skiing. We talked about places that were particularly dangerous – and how to make it safer to get to the Confederation Trail…. If you have any thoughts on anything to do with human powered transportation, please send them along to the office [email protected] to be forwarded to the consultants in the next few days. I will post a map on the Facebook page later to use as a starting point. https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=5560440460739090&set=a.407119419404579
