The County has retained WSP Canada Group Limited (WSP) to support the development of the Cycling and Trails Master Plan. The plan will incorporate previous work completed by the County and its partners including on-going projects such as the Recreational Trails Strategy. The plan will be developed using a three-phased process and is expected to be completed by Spring 2019.
Over the course of the study, the County will consult and engage with members of the public, businesses, stakeholders and local municipal staff to help inform the development of the Cycling and Trails Master Plan. Your input will be used to shape the outcomes, strategies and the recommended cycling and trails network contained in the plan.
Funding received from the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling (OMCC) Program and Regional Tourism Organization 7 is supporting the development of the Grey County Cycling and Trails Master Plan.
An interactive survey is available until mid-April as we continue to collect feedback on the strategy. The tool will help us understand:
- Key priorities and topics to be addressed in the master plan
- User experience using cycling routs and trails, and these routes could be improved
- Ideas for cycling and trail improvements
