May 1/17 16:14 pm - Milton Requesting Public Input on Improvements to Trails & Bikeways (Ontario)

Posted by Editoress on 05/1/17

The Town of Milton is asking the public for feedback at a second public input session and via an interactive online tool for the next phase in the development of a Transportation Master Plan, in conjunction with consultants WSP/MMM Group.

The drop-in session takes place Wednesday, May 10th, between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., at the Milton Sports Centre, in the lobby. Residents are invited to drop in to chat with the consultants and Town staff about proposed improvements for roads, trails, bikeways and transit, which have been developed for consideration after public input in December and January. For those travelling to the session by Milton Transit, a special drop-off service will be available, departing after the event.

Feedback can also be provided using an interactive online tool on the Town of Milton website with a series of questions and an interactive mapping exercise. The tool will be available until Friday, June 30, 2017.

"We listened very carefully to residents who shared their thoughts on transportation planning during the first phase of public input," said Milton Mayor Gord Krantz. "Hearing from these same voices and many more about the improvements that are being proposed is vital for us to realize our vision of a well-connected and complete community."

The Transportation Master Plan will define an integrated network of walking, cycling, transit routes and streets that are safe and efficient for the movement of people and goods. The plan will help prepare for a future where residents, employees and visitors have viable transportation choices to travel in and around the town to get to work, school and play destinations. This transportation network will serve varying ages and abilities, and will link to neighbouring municipalities and the greater surrounding region.
