Residents invited to Public Information Session for Whitson River Trail


Residents are invited to attend a virtual public information session to learn more about upcoming plans for the Whitson River Trail. The session will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6, 2021. Residents may tune-in anytime to review plans and ask questions. A short presentation will take place at the beginning of the session.

The Whitson River Trail is a two-kilometre active transportation route extending from the Chelmsford Town Centre, along the Whitson River to Brookside Avenue. The trail includes two pedestrian bridges and three activity stops featuring picnic shelters, outdoor fitness equipment and open green space.

Construction of the trail will provide for better connection between the Chelmsford Town Centre, the local branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library and nearby neighbourhoods.

Construction of the Whitson River Trail is the primary goal of the Chelmsford Town Centre Community Improvement Plan, which was adopted by Greater Sudbury Council on July 10, 2018.

Alignment with the Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP):

Greater Sudbury has set a target to become a net-zero community by 2050, and we all have a role to play to get there.

This initiative is directly related to the CEEP goal number eight: to achieve 35 per cent active mobility transportation mode share by 2050.
