The Minutes from the Infrastructure Subcommittee – April 13, 2016 meeting will be considered, and are also included in the agenda. Included with the minutes are 2 recommendations to be brought forward to the committee for consideration:
- Expressing opposition to a motion passed on March 7, 2016 to consider the Etobicoke Creek Valley for an LRT.
- That the email address “email@example.com” be added to the Metrolinx HLRT Stakeholders Mailing List for project updates.
(The HLRT route has an Active Transportation component within the Complete Streets design)
Kevin Montgomery, Co-Chair, has requested a discussion about Provincial Cap and Trade – Cycling Infrastructure Funding*. The discussion is about whether or not to pass a motion to support Share The Road’s recommendation that “the provincial cap and trade program be leveraged to provide $200 million for cycling infrastructure across Ontario over the next 4 years.” Included is the original letter from Share The Road that was sent to Honourable Glen Murray, M.P.P.
*As of May 16, 2016, it seems this will soon be approved with “$200-million to build more cycling infrastructure, including curb-separated bike lanes and bike parking at GO stations.”
Brampton Cycling Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public. Please come out to see the presentations, and to ask questions!
