The City of Burlington is preparing a Rural Active Transportation Strategy in order to create safe walking and cycling options in rural Burlington for residents. Having safe and connected active transportation infrastructure allows for residents to access recreational and green space in rural Burlington through walking, cycling, or any other form of non-motorized transportation.
Rural Burlington has a unique set of challenges and opportunities that this strategy plans to address through the following:
- Identifying opportunities to enhance safety. Provide realistic, cost-effective options to enable active transportation.
- Identifying missing links and barriers to active transportation.
- Identifying opportunities to integrate the Bruce Trail into the on-road transportation facilities.
- Improving the safety of trail crossings.
On Feb. 2, 2019, you are invited to attend a half-day Rural Active Transportation Workshop. The workshop will be an opportunity to hear about how people are currently using active transportation in rural Burlington, the types of trips being taken and where people are going. We also want to hear about issues and barriers to using active transportation.
The workshop will be interactive, providing opportunity to discuss and visualize active transportation facilities suitable for small town and rural areas. This fun, informative and interactive workshop is available to any persons interested in active transportation in rural Burlington.
