Huron & Perth Counties – Walk, Hike or Wheel to Brussels for the Latest on Active Transportation and Trails!
On Tuesday, October 30th, join partners from across Huron and Perth Counties at the new Brussels Business and Cultural Centre (the former Brussels Public School) for Huron-Perth’s first symposium on active transportation.
Learn from experts from across Ontario about: designing healthy communities; innovative active transportation systems; policy development and community engagement.
Delegates will also be able to participate in conversations about how to move ahead with local active transportation ideas and projects. “There is a lot of interest in active transportation and many groups already doing great work across Huron-Perth,” says Cathy Bieman of the Perth County Visitors Association. “This is a chance to bring everyone together to talk about how we can shape the future of active transportation and trails in our area and get more people, both residents and tourists, using it.”
The cost to attend is $30, which includes refreshments and lunch. For more information and to register, visit the Perth County Visitors’ Association web site at www.visitperth.ca/trails-symposium or call 519-603-3724.
This event is hosted by the Huron County Planning & Economic Development Department and Health Unit, the County of Perth Planning Department, the Perth County Visitors Association, the Perth District Health Unit, and is sponsored by the Regional Tourism Organization 4 Inc.
