The Huron County Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan addresses the unique transportation needs of the County and its local municipalities. This plan and strategy was developed for the County by the MMM Group.
The TDM Plan and Strategy assesses travel needs of Huron County residents, visitors and employees. It identifies ways to respond to these needs, reduce daily kilometres travelled by single-occupant vehicles and provides ideas for developing sustainable transportation within the county.
The plan identifies 28 recommendations and five pilot projects in response to current needs, issues and priorities of Huron County.
The TDM Plan will assist Huron County in moving toward the vision to “have a transportation network providing multi-modal options, such as walking, cycling, roads, rail, water and air transit that meets the needs of the entire community.”
Transportation was one of the goals identified in the County’s Take Action Report.
