Active Transportation (walking, cycling and other self-propelled mobility options) presents one of the greatest untapped opportunities for reducing single occupant vehicle trips, and for addressing a host of community design and public health issues. Incorporating global best practices in active transportation and promoting the concept of ‘complete streets’ and ‘sustainable’ community design is a guiding principle for the City’s planning and engineering efforts.
The City is currently developing an Active Transportation Master Plan which will offer an implementation strategy for building a connected cycling and pedestrian network across the City (and connecting to neighbouring municipalities) to enable safer, more convenient travel by non-motorized modes, and to encourage cycling as a practical means of transportation for both recreational and utilitarian purposes for the public.
Your input is important to the success of our Active Transportation Master Plan. A number of public engagement and consultation activities will take place over the course of the study. Please join the first event:
Date: Wednesday, January 18, 2017
Time: 2:00pm to 9:00pm (drop-in)
Location: Bramalea City Centre – 25 Peel Centre Dr, Brampton
(Lower level – in front of Hudson’s Bay)
All those with an interest in the study are urged to attend. If you can’t join us, please give your comments here.
