How do you travel around town? Do you walk, bike, or even skateboard? Then you’re using active transportation and we want to hear from you. Now’s your chance to help shape the future of walking and cycling networks throughout Oakville by providing input into the town’s Active Transportation Master Plan (ATMP).
Following public feedback and stakeholder consultation, the town has put together preliminary recommendations and potential revisions to its current ATMP. Residents are now invited to attend our second public meeting and workshop to review the draft recommendations, and take part in activities to help guide the priorities and implementation plans.
The meeting will take place at Town Hall on Thursday, October 20, 2016 and will begin with a drop-in session at 5 p.m. to meet and talk with the study team, followed by an interactive presentation and workshop from 6 to 8 p.m.
The town’s ATMP was first introduced in 2009 to respond to the need for an improved network of active transportation routes, and to ensure the town is a pedestrian- and cycling-friendly community for various user groups. Since then, the town has adopted supportive policies and implemented over 185 kilometres of bike lanes, multi-use trails, signed bike routes and sidewalks. The update to the plan will include new routes and facilities and cover a number of areas including safety, environmental benefits, outreach, education, infrastructure and design standards.
If you plan to attend the meeting and have any accessibility needs, please let us know before October 17, 2016 by contacting Chris Clapham at 905-845-6601, ext. 3306, (TTY: 905-338-4200), email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our accessible online feedback form.
