Workshop gets Enderby moving

Active transportation workshop Wednesday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Enderby Drill Hall

Promoting healthy, active lifestyles is on the agenda for Enderby.

The city, in partnership with the Splatsin First Nation, Interior Health, and the Shuswap Trail Alliance, will hold an active transportation workshop Wednesday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Enderby Drill Hall.

The workshop will see a range of stakeholders collaborate on how active modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, and public transit, can be better supported within the community.

“Through our integrated community sustainability planning process there was a lot of discussion surrounding active transportation and how it can improve the quality of life for Enderby residents,” said Mayor Howie Cyr.

“Walking and cycling can help to foster healthy, active lifestyles and, coupled with public transit, these modes of transportation can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the community.”

The city received a $4,800 grant through the Healthy Communities Capacity Building Fund to host two Active Transportation Workshops.  The outcomes of these workshops will be used to develop an active transportation plan.
