County invites comments on Cycling Master Plan

June 7, 2021

The County’s Cycling Master Plan is posted online for public comment.

The deadline to submit written comments is Friday, July 9. All comments and concerns should be sent directly to Emily Cowan, Community Programs Supervisor, at ecowan@pecounty.on.ca or by mail to 332 Picton Main Street, Picton, ON K0K 2T0.

The Cycling Master Plan is long-range blueprint of how to implement the transportation network. It is a living document that aligns with policies and other planning initiatives. It does not give authorization to construct major infrastructure improvements. Improvements to the cycling network will be considered during road reconstruction and rehabilitation projects.

The Cycling Master Plan includes:

  • Direction and recommendations on the County’s network of continuous and connected cycling routes, building upon the existing cycling network.
  • Policies to aide implementation of cycling investments and foster a supportive cycling environment.
  • Education and encouragement initiatives to facilitate behaviour change and continue to promote physical activity and outdoor recreation in Prince Edward County.

Development of the Cycling Master Plan followed Phase 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process for master plans. The recommended preferred alternatives were selected based on technical analysis and refined through public consultation.

In addition to providing written comments, interested parties may submit a request to the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks for an order requiring a higher level of study (i.e. requiring an individual/comprehensive EA approval before being able to proceed), or that conditions be imposed (e.g. require further studies), only on the grounds that the requested order may prevent, mitigate or remedy adverse impacts on constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights. Requests on other grounds will not be considered.  Requests should include the requester contact information and full name for the ministry.

Requests should specify what kind of order is being requested (request for additional conditions or a request for an individual/comprehensive environmental assessment), how an order may prevent, mitigate or remedy those potential adverse impacts, and any information in support of the statements in the request. This will ensure that the ministry is able to efficiently begin reviewing the request.

The request should be sent in writing or by email to:

Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks
Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks
777 Bay Street, 5th Floor
Toronto ON M7A 2J3
minister.mecp@ontario.ca

and

Director, Environmental Assessment Branch
Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks
135 St. Clair Ave. W, 1st Floor
Toronto ON, M4V 1P5
EABDirector@ontario.ca

Requests should also be sent to the municipality by mail 332 Picton Main Streeet, Picton, ON K0K 2T0 or by email.

Information will be collected in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record.
