The Town of Halton Hills is in the Regional Municipality of Halton, located in the northwestern end of the Greater Toronto Area. The Town has showed interest in adopting a Complete Streets policy as early as 2010.
The Town’s Cycling Master Plan (2010) includes a vision for Complete Streets: “The Town of Halton Hills is a cycling supportive community that embraces the “complete streets” concept and encourages both utilitarian and recreational travel. Residents are encouraged to leave their cars at home and commute to work, school and other destinations by active modes, while visitors come to enjoy the healthy lifestyle and attractions throughout the cycling network.” The Plan describes some of the economic benefits of Complete Streets and recommends that a Complete Streets policy be incorporated into the next Official Plan update: “Integrate land use development and transportation systems planning, and the principle of complete streets to give greater priority to cycling and pedestrian needs.”
In May 2018 the Town issued a RFP for a new Active Transportation Master Plan. One of the objectives of this plan is to develop a Complete Streets policy and implementation plan. TCAT is assisting the Town in developing this policy. It is expected to be completed in 2019.
