On November 21, 2013, we attended the Regional Trails Strategy Workshop in Toronto. The workshop was very well attended by various representatives from Simcoe County.
Following the workshop, Simcoe County trails submitted a response to the government, see SCT input for Ontario Trails Strategy
Simcoe County Trails is inviting your input as a member of the trails community to also provide input into the Ontario Trails Strategy, which is an initiative of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, to implement a long-term plan for developing, managing, and promoting the use of trails throughout the province.
As you know, Ontario is home to some of the most historic and longest trails in Canada, offering affordable places to be active while experiencing the province’s beauty and heritage. Trails also provide economic benefits to communities. The Government of Ontario wants to continue to explore ways to ensure Ontario’s trails remain a vital and valued resource for years to come.
A discussion paper has been posted on the Environmental Bill of Rights Registry and includes an update on “Accomplishments Thus Far” and “What remains to be done”. See http://www.downloads.ene.gov.on.ca/envision/env_reg/er/documents/2013/011-9565.pdf
At Simcoe County Trails, we encourage you to review the paper and provide your comments by Wednesday, December 4, 2013 on the Environmental Registry (Registry Number: 011-9565). Make sure you include the dash if using the number. Here is the link!
Your input and feedback will help guide the province’s and Simcoe County Trails’ work going forward.
