Huron County drafts cycling strategy to improve safety and enjoyment

October 7, 2016

The County of Huron has developed a strategy intended to improve cycling safety and enjoyment in our region. A draft strategy has been created by the Huron County Cycling Strategy Committee, which includes stakeholders from the cycling, health, municipal, police, tourism and transportation sectors.

Working with the Share the Road Cycling Coalition – a leader in promoting bicycle friendly communities, the committee hosted two public workshops in May of 2016 to discuss education and awareness initiatives, infrastructure improvements, and best practices adopted in other areas of Ontario. The resulting Huron County Cycling Strategy recommends a number of actions and an implementation plan that will make our communities more bicycle friendly within the next 5 years.

The draft strategy can be viewed online at www.huroncounty.ca/huron-county-cycling-strategy and copies are also available at special kiosks in all Huron County libraries during the month of October. The public is encouraged to provide feedback on the draft strategy by October 20th by emailing planning@huroncounty.ca or calling toll-free 1-888-524-8394 ext. 3.
