Thank you to everyone who contributed to this year's
Peterborough & the Kawarthas Cycling Summit!


PBAC 2

The 2012 Peterborough and the Kawarthas Cycling Summit brought together over 150 cycling enthusiasts, advocates, organizational representatives, and municipal leaders to discuss local and provincial cycling initiatives. Barry Rand, Deputy Warden for the County of Peterborough, and Len Vass, Councillor for the City of Peterborough, provided a warm welcome to attendees and spoke to their municipality’s increasing commitment to creating bicycle friendly communities. Eleanor McMahon, of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition, spoke about their work advocating for a provincial strategy to support cycling and discussed the many successes they’ve had over the past 18 months in bringing about supportive legislation and policy. Susan Sauvé and Brian Buchardt, planners at the City of Peterborough, and Chris Bradley, Director of Public Works at the County of Peterborough, gave updates on cycling initiatives in their respective municipalities.

IMPORTANT!
Priority-Setting Survey


This year's summit included an opportunity for community members to contribute to the process of municipal infrastructure and policy priority-setting. If you were unable to attend the summit, or if you were unable to complete the activities at the summit, please take the time to complete this short survey. The results from both this survey and the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Cycling Summit Activity Session will be submitted directly to the City and County for consideration within their respective planning processes. The data received will also be used to inform the development of a Bicycle Friendly Peterborough policy paper that will be made available to residents and decision-makers in the Greater Peterborough Area.

COMMENTS NEEDED FOR COUNTY T.M.P.

Representatives for the County have indicated that very few comments related to cycling have been received thus far. Public input into this process can help to shape cycling infrastructure for years to come.
