• Those persons who have contacted the Clerk's Office to have their names placed on the Speaker's List will go first, in the order that they appear.
• TheChair will then ask if members of the audience wish to speak.

The City's most recent Transportation Study was updated in 2005. The current study will address policies to guide the development of a comprehensive and sustainable network that will accommodate all modes of transportation, including cycling and walking, in a healthy community.
The final Transportation Plan will be incorporated into the City of Greater Sudbury's Official Plan to establish goals, objectives and policies that will manage and direct physical change throughout the community for the next two decades.
