M2 Bicycle & Pedestrians

Only areas with a white background are considered part of the General Plan.


Convenient bike routes encourage alternative modes of transportation.

In Ontario, walking and bicycling  contribute to an efficient mode of transportation and promote a healthy lifestyle.  Development patterns, a mix of land uses and the design of our roadways, buildings and development sites are an integral part of the pedestrian and bicycle system.

Goals

M2

A system of trails and corridors that facilitate and encourage bicycling and walking.

Policies

M2-1

Bikeway Plan.  We maintain our Multipurpose Trails & Bikeway Corridor Plan to create a comprehensive system of on- and off-street bikeways that connect residential areas, businesses, schools, parks, and other key destination points.

M2-2

Bicycle System.  We provide off-street multipurpose trails and Class II bikeways as our primary paths of travel and use the Class III for connectivity in constrained circumstances.

M2-3

Pedestrian Walkways .  We require walkways that promote safe and convenient travel between residential areas, businesses, schools, parks, recreation areas, and other key destination points. (Link to Community Design CD3-1)

M2-4

Network Opportunities .  We explore opportunities to expand the pedestrian and bicycle networks.  This includes consideration of utility easements, levees, drainage corridors, road right-of-ways, medians and other potential options.
