The Town of Perth, in collaboration with Parsons Inc., has announced the launch of its Active Transportation Plan (ATP).
The plan, which the town describes as a “forward-thinking initiative,” is aimed at transforming the way residents move around town.
“It focuses on developing sustainable, healthy, and enjoyable transportation options such as walking, cycling, and rolling,” reads a media release from the town.
The ATP is not just a plan for enhancing mobility; it also aims to serve as a blueprint for a healthier, more cohesive community.
Perth is “committed to inclusivity, ensuring that the plan caters to individuals of all ages and abilities,” reads the release.
The process will explore various transportation solutions, focusing on accessibility, safety, and the joy of active travel.
“We are committed to creating a vibrant, accessible Perth, where active transportation is an integral part of everyone’s daily life,” says Cathy McNally, Director of Community Services.
The Town of Perth invites residents to participate in the survey and upcoming public meeting.
“Your participation is a step towards a more sustainable, connected, and vibrant community,” states Cathy McNally.
The study is set to be completed by summer 2024, and regular updates and opportunities for public involvement will continue to be announced on the Town’s website and social media channels.
