Collingwood Active Transportation July 2017

Active Transportation Framework Adopted

The Active Transportation Framework was adopted by Council July 17, 2017  to ‘codify’ the Town’s approach to Active Transportation and identify a number of Guiding Principles  that should be considered whenever opportunities to improve and enhance Active Transportation arise.

In summary the guiding principles are:

  • Connectivity
  • Integration
  • Accessibility
  • Safety
  • Affordable and Flexible
  • Interesting and Enjoyable
  • People-oriented Design
  • Communicative
  • Comprehensive Planning

Typical opportunities for their consideration include the following: 

  • Assessment of the existing active transportation network, potential expansions, redevelopments, enhancements and supportive features;
  • Development of policies and programs around the use and promotion of  active transportation;
  • Review of private development proposals such as subdivision plans and site plans;
  • Planning and design of transportation and servicing infrastructure projects;
  • Development of new public spaces and facilities; and,
  • Formulation of neighbourhood and community-wide land use policies.
