Residents Invited to Provide Input on Proposed Naming of a Coniston Nature Trail
Released Wednesday, Jul 10, 2013
The City of Greater Sudbury has received a request to name a Coniston nature trail “Sentier Jean Tellier Trail,” after a resident of the community who was instrumental in the development of the trail. Throughout the next 30 days, residents are invited to submit input regarding this proposal.
Jean Tellier, who passed away from Lou Gehrig’s disease on November 27, 2012, had actively urged the Rainbow Routes Association and the Coniston Community Action network to develop a nature trail in Coniston. Jean Tellier had been a resident of Coniston since 1979, and was a retired educator. Tellier had walked, flagged and mapped the trail almost every day and on October 12, 2012, the trail officially opened.
The one kilometer trail, which is wheelchair accessible, connects residents and two schools via the end of Rideau Road to Edward Avenue in Coniston. It is also part of the Trans Canada Trail, which spans the entire country.
