Dan provided the following updates:
Cycling Plan – staff report completed and hope to present the cycling plan to the Community Planning, Regulation and Mobility Committee on March 10. The document is still online if committee members are interested in reviewing it again (www.burlington.ca/cyclingplan). Dan would like ITAC's support at the committee meeting either with written correspondence or by appearing as a delegation to speak to Council.
Rural Active Transportation Strategy – phase 2 of public engagement will begin in March or April to share the draft network. Engagement will be online and in person with an open house.
Cycling on rural roads - meeting took place in December with Halton Police and rural councillors to discuss complaints related to cycling on roads north of Hwy 407. The main concern relates to cyclists and vehicles not sharing the road. Dan will be contacting Milton, Halton Hills and Oakville to see if the problem exists for them also. Halton Police want to work with the city on this project and a meeting will be arranged to look at options to address this issue.
Naming of multi-use trails – there are three trails in Burlington that don’t have names: one is on the Hydro corridor behind Costco from Industrial Street to Dundas/Appleby area; the new downtown trail from Ontario Street to Graham's Lane; and the Hydro corridor east of Guelph Line that will connect Upper Middle Road and Mainway. This project is being led by the city's parks and open space office. Looking to run a contest to name the trails. Would like ITAC and Cycling Committee members to help with the selection process.
Moon in June road race – Cycling Committee met with Moon in June organizer late last year to propose a bike ride and promote cycling as part of the road race. Also, hoping to have a display table at city hall in civic square as part of the event
