The Town of Newmarket is working to create a more comfortable environment for residents to walk, cycle and drive. As part of this effort, the Town has developed a comprehensive network implementation plan. The Active Transportation Implementation Plan (ATIP) has identified the timing of the implementation of the routes throughout the Town where better facilities such as trails or bicycle lanes would help residents walk, cycle or roll to their destinations. The Town has examined, in detail, the potential challenges and costs associated with each route, and have confirmed a network that can be implemented in an efficient way using available funding.
The Active Transportation Implementation Plan builds upon work completed by the Region of York and the Town in 2014 (the Network Summary Report) and other local and regional active transportation supportive documents/references.
