BCAC Agenda – September 15, 201614 Sep 2016, Posted by Brampton Cycling, Brampton Cycling Advisory Committee, Cycling Benefits - Economics, Region of Peel Cycling in
No delegations or presentations are planned for this meeting.
Committee will receive Public Works Information, dated August 19, 2016, regarding the Implementation of Bicycle Lanes on Balmoral Drive. A report is included. The name of the report itself is a bit misleading. The report indicates the installation of “urban shoulders” — a space that is legal to cycle in, but also to park in. The idea is that they can be upgraded later to bicycle lanes if residents support it. In the meantime, this installation could be useful in connecting the new Dixie Rd. multi-use pathway to the recreation trail leading to Clark Park, toward Bramalea City Centre.
Other/New Business/Information Items
Kevin Montgomery, Co-Chair, is providing a verbal update regarding Motion for Committee Consideration regarding Dedication of Bicycle Parking at Peel Memorial Health Centre.
Lisa Stokes, Member, is proposing correspondence regarding Community Rides – Draft Thank-you Letters to Peel Regional Police Participants.
Kevin Montgomery, Co-Chair, is requesting discussion on Cycling Infrastructure in the vicinity of Turner Fenton Secondary School. Turner Fenton recently installed a new entranceway from First Golf Blvd. Kevin has noted in an email that First Golf Blvd. is listed as a candidate for cycling facilities, and wants to know if building that facility, or improving the pedestrian experience, was considered to reduce automobile use.
There will be a verbal update from Nelson Cadete, Project Manager, Active Transportation, Planning and Development Services, regarding the 2016 Bicycle Friendly Community Application
