Active Transportation Plan | 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.”
