The Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) directs the planning and development of communities across Ontario. Currently the PPS is weak in its mention of walking and cycling, which affects how these modes are treated.
Now is an opportunity to make our voices heard about active transportation and its importance to our communities. The deadline for input has been extended to Oct. 29, but do not wait – please take a few minutes and send an email today (a sample letter can be found here) to the following email address: PPSreview@ontario.ca
More information on the Provincial Policy Statement can be found here.
