The City of Vernon is considering public feedback on expanding pedestrian opportunities.

About 47 residents recently turned out to provide input for a cycling and walking trail map.

“The comments from this workshop will be included in the pedestrian and cycling master plan, which is part of the revised transportation plan and official community plan," said Wendy Majewski,transportation demand management co-ordinator.

“Everyone was very positive and wanted to thank mayor and council for the ongoing efforts to promote walking and cycling. It was noticeable that participants appreciated that additional infrastructure, although desirable to make certain routes complete and fully connected, needs to be constructed in a prioritized manner and within available budgets.”

The event was a follow-up to a workshop held last fall.
