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.  

To submit input, residents may:
-    E-mail
-    Complete the comment submission form found at
-    Attend a public input session that will be held on July 25 at 7:00 p.m. at the Colonial Inn in Coniston.
-    Mail a letter to

Input must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday August 9, 2013. For more information, please visit or call 3-1-1.
