Designing Complete Streets in Haliburton

TCAT’s Active Neighbourhoods project based in Haliburton examines how County Road 21, a highway that goes through a town centre, can better accommodate active transportation and serve residents of all ages and abilities. Through the month of June, the ANC team brought a complete streets design idea for County Road 21 to residents of Haliburton Village by tabling at the local farmer’s market and visiting an assisted living residence located on this road. These designs were developed with the help of local planners and engineers and were built using information from TCAT’s Portrait: Haliburton Village, Ontario. The document provides a summary of citizen travel habits, land-use planning, and community input for how to address safety concerns along this road. Through re-engaging citizens in the development of a vision for County Road 21, these ideas will become refined into a design proposal that reflects their values, ideas, and how they see the future of their own community.

This Active Neighbourhoods Canada project is a partnership between The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation and  Communities in Action, a member of the Haliburton County Community Co-operative.
