The City of Toronto Official Plan envisions a city where active transportation helps to relieve congestion and improve air quality. Yet, right now less than 2 per cent of the City of Toronto Transportation budget is dedicated to walking and cycling infrastructure.
Now is your opportunity to let the city know that it needs to treat cycling as a serious form of transportation.
Last night, I stopped in at the open house for the Edwards Gardens and Wilket Creek repair plans. The damage from the August 2005 flooding of the park still hasn't been repaired, and as I learned last night, the damage goes beyond just the bike path. Repairs to the bike path are planned, but not going to happen right away.
