Project update: Council approves all recommendations of Active Transportation Network study

Guelph City Council approved staff’s four recommendations from the Active Transportation Network study on July 24, 2017.

The approved recommendations are as follows:

  1. That the Guelph Active Transportation Network Design Guidelines and
    Feasibility Study dated June 2017, prepared by WSP and Paradigm
    Transportation Solutions Limited, be approved;
  2. That funding for year-round maintenance of the Active Transportation
    Network per the recommendations of the Guelph Active Transportation
    Network Design Guidelines and Feasibility Study be included in the proposed
    2018 Operating Budget;
  3. That funds to implement the Guelph Active Transportation Network Design
    Guidelines and Feasibility Study over the next ten years, estimated to be
    $12,268,000, be included in the proposed 2018-2027 Capital Budget;
  4. That the operating budget to provide year-round maintenance of the
    proposed active transportation network be increased as new trails are
    constructed to a total additional amount of approximately $271,000 per year
    once fully implemented.

The study is now complete and implementation of it’s recommendations will begin. More information about the study findings, including next steps, can be found in the June 2017 update.

This study will also be used to inform the Transportation Master Plan update beginning in late 2017.
