Active transportation open house is a success

The Huntsville Forester, December 23

Two dozen people came out to the Muskoka Active Transportation committee’s open house at Partners Hall last Thursday to provide input on the project.

The committee was established in 2007 to explore the definition of active transportation in Muskoka, recommend objectives and develop a strategy. In a discussion paper released last December, active transportation was defined as “any human-powered mode of transportation, including purposeful and recreational travel.” Purposeful travel includes getting to work or doing errands; recreational travel is purely for enjoyment and health benefits.
