Active Transportation Plan needs your involvement, says reader

By Lindsay Advocate

I really enjoyed the article by Ginny Colling about her encouragement for people to start walking. As you know there is an Active Transportation Plan being developed by the CKL and a committee has been established to provide feedback on the consultant’s proposed plan. 

More people need to know about the ATP being developed and participate by writing to the City and the committee about what they feel is needed in our city for walking and cycling opportunities.

The next meeting is this Friday, August 19th- at 1:30 pm. It is a zoom meeting and it is open to the public to listen to what is being discussed by the committee. If Ginny could attend (public) maybe she could report on the meeting and write another article about what she heard.

If the Advocate could promote the ATP regularly it would be really appreciated. This plan will have a major influence on current and potential residential development.

    Tha challenge with these is the meeting times. How many working age adults can make a Zoom meeting at 1:30 on a Friday? Ultimately the voices most impacted by something like this will be unheard because it is held during a time when your average person has to work/care for their kids/etc.

    Build the Colboune Street bridge! This should have been done years ago.

    We have been fighting with the city for the children on Walker Street to be able to get off their own street safely. There is no sidewalk on the north side of Colborne and so no way to cross this busy street to access the rest of the city by foot. How can they walk to Central Senior, when they are deemed capable and no cross walk is provided?

    1:30pm Fridays??? You will need an alternate time. This may not work for you. Try Thursday’s 8pm. People are in a better mood. What age group are you trying to attract? All the best!!!
