Help Kawartha Lakes develop its Active Transportation Master Plan

By Lindsay Advocate

A first of its kind for the municipality, Kawartha Lakes is developing an Active Transportation Master Plan (ATMP) to identify a continuous and connected network of safe, comfortable and sustainable active transportation routes and facilities. And the city needs your help.

The ATMP aims to create more and improved opportunities to use non-vehicular active modes of transportation, like walking, cycling and rollerblading, as well as mobility devices for people of all abilities.

The ATMP is scheduled to be complete by March 2023. In that time, staff are working with the consultant team at CIMA+ to review, confirm, identify and design routes, facilities, policies, programs and strategies to support active means of transportation across the municipality. This study is being conducted in accordance with the requirement of Phase 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, as approved under the Environmental Assessment Act.

Public engagement and feedback is key to the success of the plan. Throughout the study, three rounds of public engagement will be held to gather input, review and shape the plan. Get involved by visiting the online engagement site Jump In, Kawartha Lakes at
