Public Information Centre: Bike lanes on Woodspring Avenue
As part of its ongoing public consultation efforts, the Town of Newmarket is inviting residents to 'get involved' by attending a Public Information Centre on November 9 that will present an
alternative option to the existing Town bicycle lanes on Woodspring Avenue. Currently, these lanes provide residents with cycling facilities for accessing Town parks and schools, as well the Yonge Street commercial district.
What: A Public Information Centre on the Woodspring Bicycle Lanes
: Wednesday, November 9, 2016 from 7 to 9:00 p.m.
Walk-in, no presentation
: Council Chambers, Town of Newmarket Municipal Offices,
395 Mulock Drive
This PIC is an opportunity for residents to learn about the need to connect our communities with cycling facilities. The Woodspring Avenue bicycle lanes are one of the first of the Town's cycling
facilities that transformed a four-lane collector road into a two-lane road with a centre-turn lane
and bicycle lanes.
Residents will be presented with display boards explaining the existing road geometry, and the
need to allow safe cycling while at the same time providing limited, on-street resident parking.
Town staff will be present to answer questions on the proposed options. Should you be unable to attend and/or have questions regarding this meeting, please contact the undersigned at 905-895- 5193 or by email at [email protected]
Please visit newmarket.ca to learn more about community engagement opportunities and how you can get involved.
Below are the boards that were on view at the PIC. If you would like to send any comments to the Town, please do so by November 26, 2016 by fax, mail or email (contact info below the links)
