Notice of Completion - Trails Master Plan




The Municipality of Central Elgin has completed a study to develop a comprehensive trails strategy.  The strategy is a long-term strategic plan designed to provide recreational opportunities for a range of users, identify a flexible blueprint and guide for future planning, and provide guidance on the design of trail facilities and other amenities.



The 10 Year Trails Master Plan and Implementation Strategy was developed between June 2016 and March 2017. Members of the consulting team, in collaboration with the Municipality’s Technical Advisory Committee, followed phase 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process.

Public consultation took the form of an online questionnaire (available July 2016-January 2017, with 118 responses), a stakeholder workshop (held August 10, 2016 with 15 attendees), and a public information centre (held October 15, 2016 with over 40 attendees).



A Master Plan Report documenting the planning and decision making process has been prepared and is available for review for 30 calendar days beginning June 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2017 online (also see the technical appendix) and at the following locations, during regular business hours:
