Kincardine Master Cycling Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Municipality of Kincardine is developing a Master Cycling Planwith the following objectives to:

1. Provide equitable transportation options municipality-wide.

2. Design an integrated on and off-road network that seamlessly accommodates users.

3. Develop a sustainable blueprint for planning and construction.

4. Prioritize the comfort and safety of users.

5. Integrate cycling into day-to-day decision making.

6. Support long-term strategic objectives of the municipality.

7. Leverage cycling opportunities to enhance the tourism environment.

In March 2020, before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Project Team held an in-person workshop and public open house to present the vision & objectives for the Master Cycling Plan and present the preliminary proposed cycling network. Prior to the in-person consultation, an online survey tool was launched. The purpose of the survey was to provide members of the public with an opportunity to provide input into the Master Cycling Plan. Over Spring and Summer 2020, the various components of the Master Cycling Plan were developed in consultation with City Staff and the Municipality’s Trails Committee.

As the Master Cycling Plan moves towards finalization, we invite you to Stay Involved by participating in our second round of engagement. In early December, a pre-recorded “public open house” and second survey opportunity will be released on this page. Information will be shared about:

· The proposed cycling network and design considerations;

· The proposed cycling education and encouragement action plan;

· An overview of how the municipality plans to address implementation and funding; and

· Key next steps for the municipality and its partners.

Keep an eye on this page and on the Municipality’s Social Media feeds to know when these are available!

In the meantime, we encourage to read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the Master Cycling Plan. If you have a question about the Plan that is not answered by the FAQ, we invite you to submit that question here - one of our team members will do their best to provide a response!

    I do not see a map or trail of the intended Cycling Plan. Can you please share the Cycling Plan and also share the timeline this Plan will be implemented and when people can use the trails?

    The plan is not complete we are hoping to have a final plan by years end. We had the online survey that took place but is now closed. We intend to have another round of public engagement in the very near future.

    I can't find any real indication of what this plan is going to mean to trails that are already in place. For instance one of the pictures used is the bridge in Geddes park area which is used by walkers, dog walkers etc. I see no mention of walking although i have never seen bicycles on these paths. What trails or areas are the bike trails going to impact? Thanks.

    The plan will not be making changes to the existing trail network. However, it has looked at where the trails are, how they are used and how we can integrate that into any of the cycling routes that are being considered throughout the community within the public road allowance.
