The County is accepting feedback on proposed uses of the OVRT until March 1, 2017. If you have comments in regards to only "non-motorized use within town", then send that, if you have comments about garbage collection on the trail, then send that, if you'd like Carleton Place and Almonte to be linked by an active transportation / non-motorized trail all summer, then send that!
If you think motorized use of the trail will increase policing costs within your municipality over and above what the tax base can afford, send that. If your main concern is safety of children in town, please send that! You can send all these comments or others...
Comments go to OVRT@lanarkcounty.ca . Please encourage everyone (your partner, other family members, friends) to send their views as well. Even if you filled out a survey form at one of the four Lanark County Open Houses, please email and register your feelings in greater detail.
Click into the slide image (one slide of many) to review the FOVRT power point presentation. FOVRT is trying to add a new attraction to the mix in Lanark County based on the promotion of non-motorized uses on the OVRT. A new, non-motorized trail would be an additional asset for the County... while still protecting and promoting existing motorized trail networks and access to services for motorized users.
